ALTERATIONS: Play Examines Family in Flux
September, 2017 – Change is rarely easy, whether we’re altering a dress or ourselves—or, woe betide, someone else. Alterations, the fall show for Yellow Point Drama Group, follows one family as they adapt to the inevitable stages of life.
A dramatic comedy, the play follows three generations of women, all living in the same home. Erica, a costume designer, is in the middle of it all, caught between the needs of her aging mother and her teenaged daughter. Add in her husband, from whom she is recently separated and who still hopes for reconciliation—and you have the makings of a rich and complex play, generously laced with comedy.
“Over the last generation or two, women’s roles and relationships between men and women have changed so much,” says director Pat Zogar. “However, the big challenges we all face in life remain the same.”
“We’re excited about doing this play,” says producer Armando Dos Santos. “It’s a deep play that asks important questions--yet it’s very funny too.”
Alterations, written by Leigh Curran, opens on October 6, 2017, at Cedar Community Hall. The five-member cast includes YPDG veterans Joanne Rowland, Maureen Molyneaux-Watt, Alan Watt, and newcomers Katrina Basnett and Heather Haseltine.
