CHAPATTI debuts March 31-April 9, 2017

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 2017: Concluding its daringly provocative and triumphant 9th season, Dezart Performs will present CHAPATTI for the final eight performances of the season on March 31 through April 9, 2017.

CHAPATTI is a touching tale of the redemption found through friendship between human beings and the deep bond found in the companionship of our four-legged friends. Deftly written by Irish playwright Christian O’Reilly, CHAPATTI is an unlikely love story. This heartwarming comedy/drama, set in Dublin, Ireland, centers on two lonely animal-lovers for whom romance is but a distant memory. When forlorn Dan and his dog Chapatti cross paths with the amiable Betty and her nineteen cats, an unexpected spark begins a warm and gentle story about two people re-discovering the importance of human companionship.

CHAPATTI made its world premiere in 2014 at Chicago’s Northlight Theatre, directed by BJ Jones and starring Penny Slusher and the much-heralded TV, film, and Tony Award-winning stage actor, John Mahoney, two of Chicago’s finest actors.    


Directed by Dezart Performs Artistic Director Michael Shaw (CASA VALENTINA, CLYBOURNE PARK), CHAPATTI stars Dale Morris (critically-acclaimed “Charlotte” in Dezart Performs’ recent production of CASA VALENTINA) and Dana Hooley (recipient of the 2014 Craig Noel Award for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play). Set design by Thomas Valach with lighting by Phil Murphy. The production is co-produced by Michael Shaw and Clark Dugger.
