Shumiatcher Sandbox Series
Dot and Mae: Delusions of Grandeur
Created and performed by Lucy Hill and Judy Wensel
Globe Theatre acknowledges Drs. Morris & Jacqui Shumiatcher for their generous donation, which enables the bold, imaginative traditions of the series to grow and develop.
It is 1947 and Dot and Mae are birds of a feather. Two working gals gallivanting through love, lust, duty and psychiatric nursing.
Dot and Mae: Delusions of Grandeur is a new collaboration between Lucy Hill and Judy Wensel, two accomplished actor/improvisers. Combining polished theatricality and exciting, impulsive improvisation, Dot and Mae will venture back and forth between the everyday world of Hawthorn Asylum and the fantasies that consume the patients that live there. This dark improvised-comedy features a colourful cast of characters, live accompaniment from renowned musician, Jeremy Sauer and stories that shift between the dark, the heartfelt and the hilarious.
Every day is different for Dot and Mae, and every night is a new experience for the audience. See it once, see it ten times – no two performances are the same.
