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.

In Gladstone Hollow, three generations of women gather in the Catskills over a long weekend to decide the fate of their family farm. 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. Lyman's play will be directed by well-known director Bram Lewis, Artistic Director of the Schoolhouse Theater.
