December 6, 2010 at 7 p.m. When their son leaves for camp, Victor and Nancy are alone with each other for the first time since they can remember. As they struggle to communicate after years of disconnection, time telescopes forward, and what seemed a simple play about a marriage becomes an unsettling and gripping dark comedy about two people who love each other to distraction.
Featuring LAURA ESPING • TERRY HEMPLEMAN
Tanya is trying to cat-sit, but the cat is nowhere to be found. She has ordered pizza, but the pizza boy won't arrive. She has all kinds of plans—but how do you pursue them when your life has become another person's subplot? Written for one actress and one large, mysterious trunk, The Dowager is a fractured journey through the mind and memory of a woman stung by betrayal.
