“Dream House,” a new play by Simsbury playwright David Lally, will receive a script-in-hand workshop production at West Hartford’s Playhouse on Park on Nov. 27 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 28 at 2 p.m.

Performing will be Stephen Hope (Broadway’s “The Scarlet Pimpernel”), Carol Lambert(off-Broadway’s “Ladies in Retirement”), Terrence Montgomery, Dan Whelton and Daniel Smith. Dawn Loveland directs.

The play is described: “Gay, middle-aged Mark O’Brien lives with his elderly mother in the grand, deteriorating home of his childhood. The play’s time frame alternates between the present (1990s) and the past (1960s-70s), when the O’Brien family — Father RJ, mother Ginnie, Mark and brother Dickie — appeared to be the “ideal family.” As we learn, however, RJ abruptly disappeared, leaving Mark to take on the role of surrogate partner to the needy and extravagantly charming Ginnie. Dickie, sublimates his father’s abandonment into a successful business career and family. Enter Ted, a
handyman Ginnie hires who forces Mark to choose between the safety of his dreamlike past or an unknown future.

The workshop is part of the theater’s New Work Series. Tickets are $15.
