Putting Down New Roots
Frank and Katrina Basile Theater, History Center
Through the detailed story of one Polish-American family (her grandfather), Dolores puts a face on the immigration story to America and the Ellis Island experience in the early 20th century. Dolores then continues the story as her grandfather settles into “American” life during the 1920s and 1930s. Stories of the small neighborhood grocery, their family life, their troubles and joys, and the snapshots of their daily life create a personal portrait of what it was like to “put down new roots” in unfamiliar soil. Barrett Hathcock of the Birmingham Weekly says that “Dolores Hydock talks with her hands. And her elbows. And her shoulders. When she speaks, she is literally irrepressible.” Her vivacious style fills the stage with wit, energy and a swirl of characters that populate her stories of family fireworks, food fads, true love, turnip greens and other peculiarities of everyday life.
