About the Event

What goes better with family drama than a hotdish? Join us in the Recovery Lounge for the New York premiere production of this witty and heartfelt play, Hotdish, by Brendan Healy. Kayla is feeling increasingly trapped by her collapsing family. Her unemployed older brother, Toby, has moved in with her. Instead of applying for jobs and looking for his own place, Toby invests all his efforts in auditioning for his favorite reality TV cooking show. As tensions rise both relationships and dreams are put to the test...can a casserole showdown heal this family?

WRITTEN by Brendan Healy

DIRECTED by Gabrielle Schutz

PERFORMED by Casey Galligan, Mike Jones, Zac Edwards, LeAnn Yelton, and Linda Murphy


Brendan Healy's short plays have been produced all across America, while productions of his full-length works have gone up in Chicago, Minneapolis, and Seattle. He is a four-time finalist and one-time recipient of the Heideman Award from Actors Theatre of Louisville. His play Picnic (pik'nik'): v.i. was published by Playscripts, Inc., and Rain City Projects included his play The Secret Recordings of Lenin to His Lost Love Mary Anne of Topeka, KS in one of their anthologies. His play Suffering, Inc. was declared one of the seven top plays of the decade by The Seattle Times. Some of his other full-length works include Relatively We, Hotdish, City of Presidents, Mangrove Park, Not/Our Town, and two children's plays.

Made possible, in part, by the Essex County Arts Council’s Cultural Assistance Program Grant with funding provided by Essex County.
