From the author of Downstairs and Bernhardt/Hamlet, Pulitzer Prize finalist Theresa Rebeck is back with Dig, a poignant and vital new work about growth in all its forms.
Roger is content to hide from the world in his failing plant shop until Megan enters the picture and throws his carefully ordered life of leaves and stems into pure chaos. Humor and emotions fly as Megan’s desire for change clashes with Roger’s stubbornness and as other people - and their pesky views - keep barging in.
Are we bound to our roots and stuck in one place, or can we prune back the dead matter of our lives and reach for the light? Rebeck’s signature wit, intelligence, and depth brings us a riveting play about courage, photosynthesis, and what it means to have a soul worth saving.
