Story

The ultimate benefit of art is that it helps us understand how to be a human. The additional benefit that CHESAPEAKE gives us is that it helps us to understand why the struggle to be human is worthwhile.   - Tim Treanor, DC Theatre Scene

An art-loving performer, an art-hating Senator, and a Chesapeake Bay Retriever all clash in this funny, touching, and surprising story, written by Lee Blessing (A Walk in the Woods). When a grant recipient named Kerr becomes the central focus of a conservative politician's campaign to defund the arts, Kerr decides to make a protest piece. His subject? The politician's beloved four-legged sidekick. This one-man show is a tale with a tail, about art, passion, politics, friendship, faith, and humanity. Performed by Andrew Criss (LIPS TOGETHER, TEETH APART; DEATHTRAP)
