Role Description

Dottie: (Lead) a career public school teacher working in a tough Long Island neighborhood whose plans to let her hair down and spend the summer drinking away the pain of having just been left by her husband of 15 years are interrupted by exactly the kind of kid she needs a break from; normally conservative, all bets are off and propriety is forgotten as a long-repressed, foul-mouthed, sexually frustrated woman in full-blown midlife crisis nearly destroys herself and everyone around her as she tries to find her balance again. Note: Physically, has let herself go a bit; do not apply if you are super fit.
