"CRITICS’ PICK! 'DOT' IS UPROARIOUSLY FUNNY! DEEPLY MOVING! THE CAST IS TERRIFIC."
—The New York Times

Past Productions

features-large_keyart-DOT

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 after her ground-breaking work on THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS.

“CRITICS’ PICK!

UPROARIOUSLY FUNNY! DEEPLY MOVING!

A thoroughly entertaining comedy-drama, an impressive advance for Colman Domingo. Dotty is played with glowing warmth and sensitivity by Marjorie Johnson. THE CAST IS TERRIFIC.” – Charles Isherwood, The New York Times


“‘DOT’ IS RAUCOUSLY FUNNY AND MOST REWARDING!

Kudos to the Vineyard Theatre’s highly engaging production, helmed by the celebrated Broadway veteran Susan Stroman. She strikes a most responsive chord. The ensemble of seven is ideal. Marjorie Johnson delivers beautifully!” – Roma Torre, NY1


“‘DOT’ IS ROLLICKING AND AFFECTING!

VERY FUNNY, VERY MOVING AND PROPELLED BY A WONDERFUL TEAM OF ACTORS.

Susan Stroman does a perceptive job with this comedy-drama. All seven actors gloriously shine. Sharon Washington is a thorough joy. Colin Hanlon and Michael Rosen give humorous and sensitive performances. Finnerty Steeves is uproariously funny. Colman Domingo provides the audience with NONSTOP LAUGHTER AND TENDER SENSITIVITY.” – Steven Suskin, The Huffington Post


“A MAGNIFICENT NEW PLAY! FULL OF LAUGHTER AND HEARTBREAK.

The actors knock it out of the park. Marjorie Johnson astounds us with her performance. Stephen Conrad Moore and Colin Hanlon are masters. Libya V. Pugh is just plain fun as Averie. Colman Domingo tackles the subject with intelligence, heart and humor. A CAPTIVATING PRODUCTION!” – Zachary Stewart, TheaterMania
