Mr. Joy

By DANIEL BEATY

SEPT. 23 - OCT. 22, 2017
Shelterhouse Theatre

Tickets go on sale to the general public on July 31.

Directed by NICOLE A. WATSON

What happened to Mr. Joy? A Harlem community is shaken when Mr. Joy, a Chinese immigrant whose shoe repair shop has been a neighborhood pillar for decades, is the victim of a sudden and violent attack. Through the lens of nine of Mr. Joy's customers – all brought to life by one actress – we learn the subtly profound and unassuming impact the shop owner has had on each of their lives. Poignant, thoughtful and stirring, Mr. Joy invites you to celebrate the power of the invisible ties that bind us all. Written by Playhouse favorite and Dayton native Daniel Beaty!

“An absorbing journey to watch.” – Boston Globe


ADVISORY:
Mr. Joy is appropriate for adults and older teenagers. The show is a depiction of individual hardships in an inner-city community of Harlem, New York, and contains adult language and realistic narratives describing violence.
