Teaching A Dillo to Cross the Road
produced by Tennessee Theatre Company
directed by Annie Tanton
It all started when…
Will returns to May, his alcoholic wife, who is burdened with looking after Will’s sick father Sam, with the aid of the mousy nurse Flo, who’s recently lost her father and is carrying around the urn of his ashes unsure of where to scatter them.
We are thrown into a world of volatile uncertainty as we enter the lives of these mid-western working class Americans. Sex, violence, alcohol, death and unspoken tragedy are major players in this explosive piece of new writing by American playwright David Moberg.
Press for this production
A haunting piece of theatre on human behavior that will stay with you. ★★★★ Everything Theatre
The combination of suppressed grief, stress from dementia in the family, alcoholism, secrets and scatalogical references make Dillo a crucible of combustible elements, a smorgasbord of dramatic possibilities. Breaking the Fourth Wall.
