Marvin's Room was a great success for ACT2 Theatre. Thanks to cast, crew and support folks for taking the time to make this show a tremendous way to start the 2004/2005 season.

Bessie cares for her frail Aunt Ruth (who has a pacemaker that also works as a garage door opener) and bedridden father, Marvin. When she learns that she has leukemia, her only hope is to contact her long-estranged sister Lee to see if her bone marrow is compatible for a transplant. Lee reluctantly makes the trip to Florida from Ohio, bringing along her two sons, one of whom has just been released from an institution after a wave of arson. A heartwarming story of healing on many levels. “ of the funniest well as one of the wisest and most moving. When the American theater gains a new voice this original, this unexpected, you really must hear it for yourself”—NY Times
