Marvin's Room

Good-hearted Bessie has been taking care of her ailing father for 20 years, but now she’s the one who’s sick, and she must reconcile with her estranged sister, Lee. A remarkably humorous and tender play, this critically acclaimed family drama was dubbed by The New York Times as “one of the funniest plays of the year as well as one of the wisest and most moving.” Written by Scott McPherson. Starring (in order of appearance): Mary Steenburgen as Bessie, Steven Weber as Dr. Wally, Gloria Dorson as Ruth, Dana Vitatoe as Bob, Roxanne Hart as Lee, Sharon Madden as Dr. Charlotte and the retirement home director, Jason Ritter as Hank, and Kendall Schmidt as Charlie. Directed by Jenny Sullivan.
