Christine Dye is incredible to watch. Her portrayal of Dottie “Sarge” Sandusky is precise, multi-layered and emotionally true in this one-person show.

Kevin Crowley’s script is smartly simply.  This story is not about right or wrong, or guilt or innocence. It’s about Dottie, a devoted wife and mother, struggling to understand and process the whirlwind of emotions as her content life begins to crumble around her. At times, it’s heartbreaking to watch.

Saturday afternoon’s performance was so enthralling you could hear a pin drop. The moment the lights came up for curtain call, the audience stood as one to show their appreciation.

Overall a near-perfect production and a must see.

Three performances remain:

  • Mon, June 2 at 7:15pm
  • Wed, June 4 at 7:15pm
