Studio Theatre, Silver Center for the Arts

The devised, one-man show by Robin Marcotte, Dottie, stunningly examines how people suffering from dementia perceive the world. Dottie received its premiere in Philadelphia, where it garnered critical praise. Philadelphia Weekly observed, “This aerial ballet is just one of many memorable images in Marcotte’s rich and rewarding play,” and the Currier Post exclaimed, “And when Dottie, begowned again, dances on air with a mirror, the show achieves a singular, and singularly heartbreaking, power.” You’ll be moved by Dottie’s resilience, touched by her perseverance and inspired by her determination to make sense of her diminishing world. (Dottie is made possible in part by a grant from the Smart Family Foundation.)
