Gemma: A Play by Jane Dossick


Gemma: A Play by Jane Dossick


In this masterful new play by Jane Dossick, Gemma is a young woman still living at home and dominated by her mother, confined to her bed by a paralyzing accident. Gemma has become her sole caregiver.

On a daily basis, this love-smothering mother reminds her vulnerable daughter of her personal failures and shortcomings.

Gemma is so uncertain about putting herself at risk emotionally, she has taken refuge in an office building parking lot, as a cashier on the night shift.

This immaculate little character study of a lonely young woman and a young man who find each other, is warm and winning. Its themes are universal.

It is a new work of extraordinary quality by the distinguished American author Jane Dossick.

JANE DOSSICK is the author of numerous books, including Creative Therapy, Inheritance, and the plays Gemma and The View From Lake Union.
