|DJ Harner and Mia Danelle in "Drop-Off Day" by EM Lewis, directed by Michael Shutt. The Car Plays, produced by Moving Arts for the Off-Center Festival at Segerstrom Center.|
"Drop-Off Day" is about a mom who has just moved her daughter into her dorm room for the daughter's first year of college -- but saying goodbye isn't easy for either of them, when all they have is each other. The Orange County Register called the play "poignant;"-- "its depiction of a mother and daughter struggling with a fundamental change in their relationship was quietly touching and completely believable." That was very much thanks to stellar performances by DJ Harner and Mia Danelle, and direction by Michael Shutt.
