at Joplin Little Theatre
a play by Lee Blessing
The play probes into the delicate relationships of three singular women: the grandmother, Dorothea, who has sought to assert her independence through strong-willed eccentricity; her brilliant daughter, Artie, who has fled the stifling domination of her mother; and Artie;s daughter, Echo, a child of exceptional intellect and sensitivity whom Artie has abandoned to an upbringing by Dorothea. A nuanced character study.
Dorothea – aged 50-65
Artie, Dorothea’s daughter – aged 30-45
Echo, Artie’s daughter – aged 17-25
Actresses will be provided with cold readings from the script.
No monologues necessary.
Directed by Tim Klein.
Performance dates: January 28-February 1, 2015
