Here’s a look at this weekend’s live performances.
Players from Melon Patch in Leesburg present the debut of Yes, Virginia’s Community Theater, which opens Friday and plays until January 30.
The play takes place on New Year’s Eve when the longtime housekeeper, who had been laid off months earlier, shows up for work not remembering that she was no longer employed. She said she was hurt and the employer and employee discover they have an incredible friendship and the relationship takes on new relevance.
Author Stan Zimmerman said the play is loosely based on an experience he had with his mother when she was in the early stages of dementia and they were trying to get her into assisted living. Her mother suggested that they employ their black housekeeper to live with her, not realizing that the housekeeper had died years ago.
I’ve been able to process life through my work and I’m very lucky to be able to do that and earn a living at the same time, Zimmerman said.
It’s a mix of comedy and real-life subjects, he added. Ultimately, you want it to be funny and tell a story. It’s very heartfelt and moving. I can’t wait for the people of Leesburg to experience this room and these two women, it’s like you’re in the living room with them.
In the play, Virginia is played by Ze Carter and Denise is played by Nancy Sievert.
