About the Play 

Place- Northampton. Time- 1980. Naomi’s older sister is about to get married. Naomi and her partner will attend the wedding, but Naomi’s mother, fearing her own mother’s judgment, requests that Naomi not come out as a lesbian to her grandmother until after the wedding is over. Naomi resists. Meanwhile, her grandmother has her own plan for the wedding. With humor and tenderness, “Invitation to the Dance” explores family secrets and the possibility of change between three generations of women as each struggles to be true to herself.
