Comedy. In Pre-Production. An amusing look at the roller coaster lives of eight women. The film is based on the hit one-woman show conceived, written and performed by Dayna Dooley.
Daynaland, an exciting solo show, takes you on an unforgettable, fun-filled ride! Dooley embodies eight, distinctly different characters, displaying her comic genius and timing. Daynaland tackles wide-ranging dimensions of urban life through moving portrayals. Dooley presents “ordinary” people just trying to make sense of the intense roller coaster that has become their life.
In the great tradition of comedic, one-woman shows like Whoopi Goldberg (“Whoopi Goldberg”), Tracey Ullman (“Tracey Ullman: Live and Exposed”) and Lilly Tomlin (“The Search of Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe”), Daynaland interweaves each character’s story to create a fulfilling work, not just stand-up vignettes.
