Dorset Theatre Festival Resident Playwright Theresa Rebeck – author of Roundabout Theatre Company's 2018 Broadway production "Bernhardt/Hamlet" - has developed more than six productions at Dorset that have gone on to other stages around the country, including 2017’s "Downstairs" starring Tim Daly and Tyne Daly, which ran Off-Broadway at Primary Stages in the fall of last year.
The most Broadway-produced female playwright of our time, Rebeck returns to the Dorset Theatre Festival with "Dig" – running through July 27th.
A dying plant shop in a dying urban neighborhood receives a visitor from the past: Meghan, the neighborhood screw-up, whose suicide attempt followed a terrible tragedy. Roger, the store owner, wants nothing to do with this situation, but Meghan is improbably clinging to life. Can a soul beyond saving be saved? It is a play about courage, redemption and photosynthesis.
