Written by husband and wife Winnie Holzman and Paul Dooley, "ASSISTED LIVING" explores the surprising connections between four very different characters – Frank, a beloved soap opera star facing an uncertain future; Emily, his former makeup artist and longtime girlfriend; Edgar, a curmudgeon who feels abandoned in his assisted living facility; and Heather, Edgar’s unfulfilled, unmarried daughter who is Frank’s biggest fan.
Holzman and Dooley’s play (their first full length collaboration) is a funny and touching look at the ways we can change each other’s lives – sometimes without even knowing it. ASSISTED LIVING is directed by critically acclaimed Los Angeles theater director, Larry Biederman, and produced by Linda Toliver and Gary Guidinger.
Paul Dooley is one of America’s most beloved character actors. Affectionately known as “America’s Dad”, his on screen kids have included Julia Roberts, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Molly Ringwald, Toni Collette, Christina Applegate, Robin Wright and many more. His extensive film credits include the coming-of-age classics Breaking Away, and Sixteen Candles, and the movie musicals Hairspray and Popeye. Dooley has received two Emmy nominations for his work as the out-of-the-closet father on HBO’s Dream On and as the “take no prisoners” judge on The Practice. In addition, he has had recurring roles on many TV series, including ER, Grace Under Fire, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and My So-Called Life. Dooley’s film work also includes Insomnia with Al Pacino, and Christopher Guest’s Waiting for Guffman and A Mighty Wind.
Winnie Holzman, Dooley’s wife, is best known as the co-writer (with famed composer Stephen Schwartz) of the international musical phenomenon Wicked, for which she was nominated for a Tony. She also created the memorable television drama, My So Called Life, starring Claire Danes, which earned Holzman an Emmy nomination. Recently, she teamed with her daughter, Savannah Dooley, to create ABC Family’s critically acclaimed series, Huge. She got her start writing the groundbreaking series thirtysomething, and also executive produced (again with Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz) the award-winning drama series, Once and Again. As an actress, Holzman played the chocolate-obsessed divorced woman in Jerry Maguire and Larry David’s wife’s therapist on Curb Your Enthusiasm.
