PREVIEW: Chester Theatre Company, "Birds of North America"

Chester Theatre Company, Chester, MA
July 7 through July 17, 2022

Chester Theatre Company (CTC) opens Birds of North America by Anna Ouyang Moench, “a beautiful look at a father and daughter who find in birding a surprising way to connect—to understand more about themselves, each other, and the changing world around them,” in the words of CTC Producing Artistic Director Daniel Elihu Kramer.

Director Alex Keegan makes her CTC debut. Christopher Patrick Mullen, last seen on the Town Hall Theatre stage in 2004’s The Pavilion, co-stars with Micheline Wu, making her first appearance in Chester.

Birds of North America is the company’s second of four productions in its 33rd season. Future productions include the play that reopened Broadway, Pass Over by Antoinette Nwandu, and the World Premiere of To the Moon and Back by Darcy Parker Bruce.

All performances of the productions named above will take place in the intimate setting of Chester's Historic Town Hall, or by phone at 413.354.7771. 
Founded by a former Artistic Director of Dublin’s Abbey Theatre, Vincent Dowling, Chester Theatre Company is an award-winning professional theatre company known for presenting high quality, contemporary productions with top-notch actors, directors, and designers from across the country since 1990.
