A new play by Theresa Rebeck, the author of "Downstairs".

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? A play about courage, redemption and photosynthesis.

Dorset Theatre Festival Resident Playwright Theresa Rebeck (Broadway’s 2018 Bernhardt/Hamlet), has developed more than six productions at the Festival 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 fall 2018. The Most Broadway-Produced Female Playwright of Our Time, Rebeck returns to Dorset on the heels of the new spy thriller, 355 (with Jessica Chastain’s production company Freckle Films), for which she penned the script, having sold at the Cannes Film Festival market last spring.
