When a father’s love of music clashes with his daughter’s passion for basketball, modernist composer Charles Ives is the perfect referee. Charles Ives Take Me Home is a comedic and poignant story of dissonance, defense, and devotion.
Jessica Dickey received a Susan Blackburn Prize nomination for Charles Ives Take Me Home. She made her playwriting debut with her hit one-woman show The Amish Project, which premiered at the New York International Fringe Festival. The Amish Project has since been produced at the Cherry Lane Theatre, Rattlestick, the American Theater Company (Chicago), the City Theatre (Pittsburgh), and internationally. Her newest play, Row After Row, has a scheduled production in Tucson next spring.
