This holiday season, The Marsh Berkeley brings Lisa Rothman’s Dragon in the Drop-Off Lane to the Marsh Discovery Series, which showcases work under development. After her kids dodge bullets at the local park, Rothman seeks respite by bringing them to a Winter Solstice Carnival in the ritzy town where she grew up. Holding the acorn pouch she purchased for $30, Lisa can’t wait to use the acorns to pay for the pagan caroling, the gingerbread man decorating, and the puppet show. But now finds she’s dodging a sanctimonious parent-volunteer in Lululemon yoga pants, a fire-breathing dragon, and – the most formidable opponent of all – her father. The stage is set for a heartfelt farce in which Lisa must reckon with what her parenting choices have cost her children.
