Cape Cod Theatre Project presents A Good Day to Me Not to You
The Cape Cod Theatre Project will present A Good Day to Me Not to You, the final show in its 2022 season. It will be presented by Noor Theatre Founding Director Lameece IIssaq. She will also star as her solo performance. Sivan Battat, a fellow Noor Theater colleague, will be directing. Three script-in hand performances will take place at Falmouth Academy on July 21st-22nd and 23rd at 7:15 p.m. ET.
A fictional solo show based on many true things, A Good Day to Me Not to You follows a 40- something dental assistant who gets fired and moves into a women's rooming house run by nuns. There she must ultimately come to terms with the untimely passing of her younger sister and face the consequences of her untaken path to motherhood, all while fending off the verbal assaults of her unpredictable and sometimes deranged co-habitants. A Good Day to Me Not to You was originally developed at Theatre Aspen's Solo Flights Festival and at New York Theatre Workshop.
