*Door to Door

Written by James Sherman
Directed by Dennis Zacek
November 12 – December 19, 1999


Victory Gardens Playwrights Ensemble member James Sherman brings his special view to the annals of Chicago Jewish life in his newest work, Door to Door. When one woman reflects on her past as a daughter, a wife, and a mother, who does she see? As Saving Private Ryan was a tribute to the men who went to war, Door to Door is a celebration of the women who stayed home. Roslyn Alexander, Cheryl Ross Mitchell and Kim Wade will star in Sherman’s poignant world premiere about seventy years in the life of one American Jewish woman.
