STRATFORD, Conn. -- A play by Irish playwright Christian O'Reilly brings two complex and appealing characters to the Stratford stage in March.
"Chapatti," which runs March to 19 at Square One Theatre, follow the unexpected intersection between two middle-age singletons.
Betty is a lonely widow with 19 cats, and Dan, a bereaved gentleman who lives only for his beloved dog, Chapatti, named for Dan's favorite Indian dish.
The story follows Betty and Dan as they hurt, heal and ultimately come to terms with their lives and each other.
From their first encounter, one might expect romance to follow Dan and Betty, with the prickly, sardonic dog lover eventually being won over by the warm-hearted cat fancier. And eventually it does but in an unexpected way.
The cast includes award-winners Lucy Babbitt of Stratford and Al Kulcsar of Fairfield. It is directed by Tom Holehan, of Stratford.
