Dorothy

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Graham Reid 

  • Synopsis

    Dorothy deals with a woman struggling to come to terms with a seeming lack of control over her 'internal' world. When an obscene and evil 'external' force crashes in on her life and dictates events, it offers a choice to Dorothy and those around her: renewed hope or utter devastation.
