Dandelion: an original musical
starring Becky Gulsvig (Come From Away) & Devon Goffman (On your Feet)
The story of Jane and her mother Delilah, told in a powerful new musical that examines the traditional expectations of female responsibility alongside what it means to truly love yourself and your family. In Dandelion, Jane and Delilah are forced to confront profound questions of guilt, responsibility, and sacrifice as Jane must decide between attending college in pursuit of her lifelong dreams, or staying home to care for Delilah - who is locked in a desperate battle with severe mental illness and opioid addiction. Both moving and funny, Dandelion is a story of hope and grief, but, perhaps most importantly, Dandelion is a story of female power, and the promise of new possibility.
