Emmy Award-Winner, Dorothy Lyman, who is well known for playing Opal Gardner on All My Children and Naomi Oates Harper on Mama's Family, will premiere her new play, In the Bleak Midwinter, at Shetler Studios' Theatre 54, in Manhattan. The production stars Blue Bloods series regular, Abigail Hawk. The limited engagement runs September 8 - 23 with Opening Night on Saturday, September 8.

It's a freezing Catskill winter outside on Gladstone Farms and pretty frosty inside the farmhouse kitchen too, as 3 generations of women debate the fate of their matriarch. A holiday weekend with family becomes a fulcrum for change, as recently widowed Elizabeth Gladstone (Dorothy Lyman) faces old age and the loss of her home. Betsy, her daughter, (Abigail Hawk) and granddaughter Liz, (Jeanne Lauren Smith) each have their own ideas about what should happen. Betsy wants to cash out, Liz wants to try to hang on to the farm. Tempers are as short as the winter days. But for Elizabeth, the only real question is can the third act of her life really be the best one yet?

In the Bleak Midwinter stars Tim Bohn (Friends/NBC & Quantico/ABC), Abigail Hawk, Brennan Lowery (Happily Ever After/59E/59), Dorothy Lyman, Jeanne Lauren Smith

(Conquest of the Universe or When Queens Collide, directed by Everett Quinton/La MaMa), and Shannon Stowe (Medea/New School for Drama).

The design team includes set design by Johanna Pan, lighting design by Elizabeth Mak, and sound design by James Higgins. Megan Schadler serves as production manager with stage management by Natalie Jones. The production is directed by Katie McHugh.
