This hilarious new play grapples unflinchingly with aging parents, midlife crises, and the heart of a West Philly neighborhood.

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. DOT originally premiered at the Humana Festival of New American Plays.

This show contains adult language and themes, recommended for ages 16+

What People Are Saying

"DOT is a beautifully unsettling play! [...] Colman Domingo's most ambitious play to date. A fearless mix of bone-dry humor and warp-speed emotional shifts."
New York Times
"A thoroughly entertaining comedy-drama! [...] An impressive advance for Colman Domingo."
Theatre Mania

"A magnificent new play! Full of laughter and heartbreak [...] Colman Domingo tackles the subject with intelligence, heart and humor."
