THE ANGEL OF CHATHAM SQUARE
The Angel of Chatham Square by Healdsburg playwright Audie Foote comes to the Willits Community Theatre for its holiday season run, opening on Friday, November 7, 14, 15 at 8pm and Sunday 18 at 2pm. Set in the depths of New York’s Bowery right after World War II, The Angel of Chatham Square tells a simple and heartwarming story. A young widowed mother, Kitty Fleming, must travel back home at night, alone after a night shift at an uptown chop house. She must change busses at Chatham Square, a notoriously dangerous part of town known by locals as “the elephants’ graveyard for the sorrowful and the unbefriended.” While waiting alone at a lonely bus stop, one night she runs into a group of derelicts who take her under their “wings.” One, in particular, wins her heart, and the play tells the story of how their unusual friendship blossoms.
The production is directed by Christine Dill and the performers are Kelly Kesey, Rod Grainger, Gretchen Anderson, Ron Greystar, Pete Winslow, Tim Suttles, Mike A’Dair and David Partch.
Director Christine Dill has participated in local theatre for over 25 years. She has acted, staged managed, and prop mistressed for both the Ukiah Players and for Mendocino College. In February 2013 she directed the fabulous “Same Time, Next Year” for WCT.
Advance tickets are available at Mazahar at 38 S. Main, Willits; online at brownpapertickets.com; or for credit card orders phone the WCT office at 707-459-0895. Tickets will also be available at the door. The WCT playhouse is located at 37 W. Van Lane (behind Shanachie Pub).
