Dorset Players Present Mothers and Sons

Dorset Players Present Mothers and Sons Vermont Arts 2018

The Dorset Players with Sullivan PLLC present, “Mothers and Sons,” Terence McNally’s 2014 Tony nominated play. Performances will be held March 2, 3, 9 and 10 at 7:30 PM and March 4 and 11 at 2:00 PM at the Dorset Playhouse. Directed by Sherry Kratzer and produced by Cheryl Gushee, the cast includes Lynne Marcus, Paul Michael Brinker, Mike Cutler, Lucas Bowen and Julian Pirie.
This play tells the story of an older woman, who pays an unexpected visit to the New York apartment of her late son’s partner, who is now married to another man and has a young son. It is both humorous and moving. Challenged to see how society has changed around her, generations collide as she revisits the past and begins to see the life her son might have led.
The theater cafe, offering coffee and deserts, will be open one hour prior to each performance. Join us on opening night for an after performance reception. All members get two for one tickets at the Saturday, March 3rd performance.
Show sponsors: American Hairlines, Blue Flame Gas Co., Homestead Landscaping and Up for Breakfast. Tickets may be purchased by calling the box office at 802 867-5570, or online at or at the box office two hours before each performance

Disgraced Vermont Arts 2018

Amir Kapoor is a successful Pakistani-American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots. Emily, his wife, is a white artist whose work is influenced by Islamic imagery. When the couple hosts a dinner party, what starts out as a friendly conversation escalates into something far more damaging. Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize. “In dialogue that bristles with wit and intelligence, Mr. Akhtar…puts contemporary attitudes toward religion under a microscope, revealing how tenuous self-image can be for people born into one way of being who have embraced another…” – The New York Times

Time: 2/28/18 7:30pm - 3/18/18 9:00pm
