New Repertory Theatre presents Chesapeake
, a playfully intelligent fable about a New York performance artist, a firebrand conservative Southern politician, and Lucky, the Chesapeake Bay retriever that unites their fates forever. Tony and Pulitzer Prize-nominee Lee Blessing (A Walk in the Woods
) penned this play, which poses provocative questions about the nature of art and the role of public funding in the art world. Kerr, a liberal and confrontational performance artist, decides to kidnap his bible-thumping Senator's beloved dog when the politician announces plans to cut arts funding. When the plan goes awry, the two nemeses are brought together and find that karma bites back. Called "eloquent" by Variety
, Chesapeake gives new meaning to the term "man's best friend."
