Chester Bailey

A riveting new play by Joseph Dougherty
Directed by Tom Holehan
Starring Alexander Kulcsar & Kiel Stango

In a stateside hospital at the close of World War II, a young man recovers from catastrophic injuries. Or so the doctors have told him. But Chester Bailey denies what’s happened to him has actually happened, which is how he comes under the care of Dr. Philip Cotton. Older, wounded in his own ways, Cotton is charged with leading Chester back to reality. The journey is not what either man expected.

“As striking as a sucker punch, too effective to let you keep an emotional distance, even if you’re at a social one. It quickly convinces you that its less-than-credible fictional world is not only vivid but real.”
-The New York Times

Too compelling to look away!
– The Boston Globe

A gift for everyone, on both sides of the footlights.
– Albany Times Union

Sublimely nuanced, richly layered.
– The Berkshire Eagle

This is a mysterious, unforgettable story!
