Lyman has had a prolific career as an actress, director and producer. As an actress, she has appeared on Broadway and off-Broadway, in films and in numerous daytime television shows.

The six-character play is comprised of an ensemble cast that includes Eric Bryant, Meredith Handerhan, Dorothy Lyman, Thea McCartan, Frank Shiner and Jeanne Lauren Smith; it is a funny, heartwarming, and at times gut wrenching story.
