Marvin's Room

Exploring an unsentimental reality with hope, compassion and a dose of wonderfully absurd humor, Scott McPherson’s play is a life-affirming reminder of the gift we give ourselves when we love unconditionally.

ABOUT THE SHOW

Estranged sisters Lee and Bessie have never seen eye to eye. Lee is a single mother who's been busy raising her troubled teenage son, Hank. Bessie's got her hands full with their elderly father and his soap opera-obsessed sister. When Bessie is diagnosed with leukemia, the two women reunite for the first time in 18 years. Are Lee’s good intentions and wig-styling skills enough to make up for her long absence? Can Bessie help Hank finally feel at home somewhere; or at least keep him from burning her house down? Can these almost-strangers become a family in time to make plans, make amends, and maybe make a trip to Disney World?
