Violet and Me – A Mama-logue with Dorothy Lyman

June 14, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


In this meditation on motherhood, feminism and fame, two-time Emmy Award winner Dorothy Lyman searches for her orphaned mother’s heritage and finds herself in the bargain. Discover her journey as she tells it from her Midwestern childhood, through motherhood, her marriages and her successful Hollywood career. Violet and Me places a microscope on the progression of gender equality since the 1950’s, questioning how far we have actually come.

“If it weren’t for Nancy McMillan and my fellow writers in our memoir class here at Arts Escape, this piece wouldn’t exist,” Lyman says. “My debt of gratitude to them and this wonderful workshop space is enormous.”

In August, Lyman brings the play’s premiere to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Come and listen; your feedback is most welcome. Q&A to follow.
