The world premiere of 17 Orchard Point begins performances at The Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row on April 25. Tony winner Michele Pawk stars alongside the play’s writer, Stephanie DiMaggio. The dark comedy is co-written by Anton Dudley and directed by Stella Powell-Jones.
The play follows two generations of women battling to claim their home and history. Lydia (Pawk) lives by her motto, "leave your baggage at the door, or it will end up on your face." A decade after fleeing Cleveland for one long night out in Vegas, leaving the family's apartment building under the management of her daughter Vera (DiMaggio), Lydia returns to find a lifetime of "baggage” waiting for her inside.
17 Orchard Point will celebrate its official opening night on May 4 and run through May 24.
