Rocky Road

"A family birthday party on a lovely summer day is interrupted when a feeble old man shows up, unannounced and uninvited, seeking forgiveness for something the 68-year-old hostess has worked a lifetime to forget. Dorothy Mae Walker is the unshakeable matriarch at the center of this world premiere production written by Columbia College Chicago recent graduate Michael Allen Harris.  A retired English teacher living in a contemporary urban world, Dorothy Mae will not be defeated by disappointments and unexpected set-backs, managing her fate and family with grace, strength and humor, snatching moments of joy where she can, sharing love where she may."
