Chester Theatre Company

Town Hall, Middlefield St, Chester

The Chester Theatre Company provides an intimate setting in which audiences may view highly acclaimed professional artists performing works that include both world premieres and plays by local talent.

Presenting Our 2007 Season:


The Bully Pulpit
Written and Performed by Michael O. Smith
July 5-15
1918. The country is at war. Teddy Roosevelt is celebrating his 60th birthday at his beloved Sagamore Hill. Ten years out of office, he’s trying to get a handle on his legacy. Surrounded by mementoes of his adventures as a rancher, Rough Rider, and naturalist, Teddy re-examines the colorful events of his turbulent life from a fresh perspective. Acclaimed actor Michael O. Smith, whose uncanny portrayal of TR was so memorable in the CTC production of John and Teddy, navigates a vibrant, often funny journey into the complex persona of a president who shaped the country’s destiny with wit, wisdom and sheer willpower.

 

The Interview
by Faye Sholiton
July 18-29
Bracha Weissman has transformed herself into a emotional recluse – her identity defined by the loss of her family in the Nazi death camps she miraculously survived. Her attachment to the past has estranged her daughter Rifka, who wants to get on with the life of a modern day mom in California. Bracha's armor begins to crack when Ann Meshenberg appears one day to take her oral testimony for a video archive. Ann, the daughter of Holocaust survivors, has her own agenda: the need to ask a stranger what she could not ask her parents. The stories the women share are a gift of courage and humanity, and what begins as a simple history project blossoms into a story of mothers and daughters forgiving and being forgiven.

"It is one of those moments we who go to the theater live for."
-- Cleveland Plain Dealer

 

Mercy of a Storm
by Jeff Hatcher
directed by James Warwick
August 1-12
New Year's Eve, 1945. The pool house of an exclusive country club – the setting for a romantic tryst, but a tryst with a twist. The lovers, George and Zanovia are married. To each other. George is a pillar of the community, Zanovia a blonde from the wrong side of the tracks. They’ve come to work out the details of their impending divorce but it seems passion hasn’t fled altogether. Or hardly at all. As the storm rages, George and Zanovia find themselves tempest toss’t on a marital ship that veers between smooth sailing and foundering on the rocks. A puzzle with twists, turns and surprises served up in a champagne cocktail of sexy, comic romance.

 

Grace
by Craig Wright
directed by Byam Stevens
August 15-26
Steve’s a born-again real estate developer with plans for a chain of Gospel theme hotels. Sam’s a NASA computer programmer whose life and face were ruined in a fiery car crash. They’re neighbors in a Florida condo. Sara, Sam’s wife is becoming increasingly interested in the disfigured man next door. Then there’s Karl – the exterminator for the condo complex, a German born immigrant with his own horrific tales of sin and forgiveness. Craig Wright, author of The Pavilion, returns with a play that confirms his stature as one of the country’s finest playwrights, a loopy poet with a taste for exploring universal mysteries.

“Gripping and provocative.” – The Washington Post

“Profound and dangerous, epic and personal.” – Chicago Sun-Times
