M&D Playhouse is pleased to present Dirt, the sixth production in our 2017 series of eleven plays about relationships. Written by Bruce Gooch, this drama explores the ravages of old age, painful extrangement among family members, and our lifelong connections to home and nature. "When an estranged son retruns home and finds his father fighting to hold onto his mind, they are thrust into a struggle to control their land and the memories it holds. Dirt explores how we forge our identities through our connections to our home, to our past, and to each other." roguemachinetheater.com

Dirt is presented June 22 - July 2, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM with matinees Sundays at 4:00 PM at Your Theatre, Willow Common, 1857 White Mountain Highway, North Conway.

Here's what reviewers elsewhere have said about Dirt:
"Dirt is an extremely interesting play; a fine work filled with poetic imagery, expressing the grandeur, beauty, and mystery of the circles of life and death, nature, and man's place in the world. An estranged son returns home to aid his mentally declining father - a farmer fixated on his land, his need to work, and his identity inseparable from the regular changing seasons and nature's inevitable flow around him. Dirt...offers a serious contemplation on each of us trudging toward our own end." stagehappenings.com
"It's a very primal play about growth and death, the cycles of land and building relationships." dcnews.com
