The Dragon Productions Theatre Company recently launched its 2012 season with “Marvin’s Room,” scheduled to run through Feb. 12 in Palo Alto.
Written by Scott McPherson, the 1992 Drama Desk Award winner for Best Play is a darkly humorous look at life, death, mental illness and family. It centers on two estranged sisters who are reunited when one of them needs the family to be tested for a bone-marrow donation.
Cast members include Mary Lou Torre, Meredith Hagedorn, Ronald Feichtmeir, Clifford Samoranos, Lynda Marcum, Janine Evans, Jeff Swan and Jim Johnson. Laura Jane Bailey directs.
The Dragon Theatre is located at 535 Alma St., Palo Alto.
