ChapattiBy Christian O'Reilly
REGIONAL PREMIERE. (Chuh-pah-tee) A flat pancake-like bread, usually of whole wheat flour, baked on a griddle.
Romance is a distant memory for two lonely animal-lovers living in Dublin. When forlorn Dan and his dog Chapatti cross paths with the amiable Betty and her nineteen cats, an unexpected spark begins a warm and gentle story about two people rediscovering the importance of human companionship.
Poetic, witty, well-written play
