About This Show

The holidays are always a wild family affair at the Shealy house. But this year, Dotty and her three grown children gather with more than exchanging presents on their minds. As Dotty struggles to hold on to her memory, her children must fight to balance care for their mother and care for themselves. This twisted and hilarious new play grapples unflinchingly with aging parents, midlife crises, and the heart of a West Philly neighborhood. Colman Domingo (Wild With Happy) returns to The Vineyard following his solo show A Boy And His Soul and Tony Award® nomination for The Scottsboro Boys, reuniting with Tony Award®-winning director Susan Stroman (The Producers) after her ground-breaking work on The Scottsboro Boys.
