This gentle comedy at True Colors Theatre Company uses humor to look at issues surrounding aging parents and midlife crises. The setting is Christmastime in urban West Philadelphia. Playwright Colman Domingo, says, “sees the absurdity and human comedy in a messy, volatile, all-too-real family dynamic.” Atlanta-born, New York-based stage/film actor Denise Burse is Dot. She’s joined onstage by such familiar Atlanta faces as Gilbert Glenn Brown, Tinashe Kajese-Bolden and Lee Osorio. True Colors co-founder and artistic director Kenny Leon directs. Contains adult language, situations. Please note that True Colors performs at the Southwest Arts Center.
