Lisa Jolley Stars as a Troubled Wife and Mother in “Next to Normal” at Deep Dish Theater Company

Critically acclaimed comedienne Lisa Jolley demonstrates an equally fine flair for drama as she sinks her teeth into the juicy role of Diana, a deep troubled wife and mother well acquainted with grief whose sorrows have unhinged her. Alarmed by her personality changes and hallucinations, Diana’s well-meaning husband, Dan (passionately portrayed by John Allore), sends her to a pair of psychiatrists, Dr. Fine and Dr. Madden (each given a distinct disagreeable personality by Mark Ridenour), who try to suppress her symptoms of mental illness and banish her hallucinationss with stronger and stronger medications and, later, with shock treatments that make her more pliable, but at what price?

"Cinderella" will run Dec. 9-11 and 15-18 on Raleigh Little Theatre's main stage
