The Dorset Theatre Festival presents the world premiere of Dig through July 27. With its absorbing themes and complex characters, this play should have many future productions. The setting, an old shop filled with plants is not the usual one for a play. The audience enters another world as it gets to know the complicated people who find solace in the plants they tend. Written and directed by Theresa Rebeck, this play offers insight into flawed but redeemable humans whom you care about. For Bob and myself, seeing new plays is exciting as we enter lives we have known little or nothing of before. However much we enjoy a play, it is always a learning experience as people are brought to life through the skill of the actors and director. We have seen many plays by Theresa Rebeck and are always impressed by the diversity of her work as she explores the stories of different people in various worlds. Try not to miss this play.
