The Billie Holiday Theatre launches its 2018-2019 Season with this compelling work under the direction of Tony Award-winning director Kenny Leon (American Son currently on Broadway starring Kerry Washington and Steven Pasquale, A Raisin in the Sun and August Wilson’s Fences on Broadway) and starring Emmy Award-winning Billie Holiday Theatre alumna Denise Burse (Black Mirror, The Old Settler, “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne”).
Crackling with humor, Dot takes a light-hearted look at an illness facing all communities and explores the interactions of widowed matriarch Dotty and her family and mental health in the Black community. As Dotty struggles to hold onto her memory – a result of her Alzheimer’s diagnosis – her children must fight to balance care for their mother with care for themselves.
