The 2019 Season at The Chenango River Theatre

OUR 2019 SEASON

THE 2019 SEASON IS SPONSORED BY EMPIRE TOYOTA

 

A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2 - By Lucas Knath.  

May 24 – June 16. Directed by Kiara Pipino.

In the final scene of Ibsen’s 1879 groundbreaking masterwork, Nora Helmer makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children, and begin a life on her own.  This climactic event - when Nora slams the door on everything in her life - instantly propelled world drama into the modern age.  In A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2, many years have passed since Nora’s exit.  Now, there’s a knock on that same door.  Nora has returned.  But why?  And what will it mean for those she left behind?

 

INCIDENT AT OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL HELP - By Katie Forgette (World Premiere).

July 5 – 28.  Co-Produced by The Raymond Corporation.

The play tells the story of the O'Sheas, a cash-challenged, Irish-Catholic family just trying to get through 1973.  Linda O'Shea, our 19-year old narrator, is attempting to re-enact for the audience the most turbulent day of her life, her own, very personal Saturday Night Massacre...but her family insists on telling their side of the story.  A memory play in the vein of Over the Tavern and Brighton Beach Memoirs.

 

THE IMMIGRANT - By Mark Harelik.

Aug. 16 – Sept. 8. Directed by Karla Hartley.  Co-Produced by IBM and Pete & Karen Raymond.

Rural Central Texas, 1909.  A young Russian-Jewish immigrant, newly arrived in America through the port of Galveston, pulls his banana cart into the hamlet of Hamilton.  Fleeing the vicious pogroms of his homeland, he has sought refuge in the land of the free.  Able to speak only Yiddish, alone in the midst of a staunchly Christian community, he begs for shelter.  Over the next 30 years, he makes a home and raises a family in this tiny town.  It’s the story of a young Russian-Jewish couple and the local couple that take them in, as religion meets religion, culture meets culture, fear meets fear, and love meets love.  This is the true story of Haskell Harelik, “the immigrant.”

 

THE SEA HORSE - By Edward Moore.

Sept. 27 – Oct. 13.  Directed by Bill Lelbach.  Co-Produced by Edward Jones Investments.

Originally produced at New York's Circle Rep, this tender, ribald, and complex love story is set in a waterfront bar where seaman Harry Bales spends his shore leave.  "The Sea Horse" is run by Gertrude Blum, with whom Harry enjoys a purely physical relationship; they have never shared their private yearnings.  Gertrude has encased her heart behind a facade of toughness following a failed marriage.  Now Harry has a dream; he wants to buy a charter fishing boat and to have a son.  The play progresses through a ritual courtship as these two outwardly abrasive characters’ fight, make up, fight again, spin dreams, deflate them, make love and reveal their locked-up secrets.
