CHECK, PLEASE by Jonathan Rand – directed by Jeff Jackson
Dating can be hard. Especially when your date happens to be a schizophrenic, a bigamist, or a mime. CHECK, PLEASE follows a series of blind dinner dates that couldn't get any worse—until they do. Could there possibly be a light at the end of the tunnel?

THE ACTOR'S NIGHTMARE by Christopher Durang – directed by Steve Catron
Anyone who's involved in theatre knows the dream: you find yourself on-stage, ready to perform, only you don't know what the play is – you’ve never rehearsed - you don't know the plot, let alone the lines! George finds himself on stage, uncertain of where he is or how he got there – suddenly he's thrust on stage, it's HAMLET?!?– a glamorous actress appears to be doing PRIVATE LIVES by Noel Coward?!? Shakespeare?? WAITING FOR GODOT?? A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS?? This hilarious spoof is a classic!

Performances are scheduled for Friday and Saturday, September 24, 25 at 8pm and Sunday September 26 at 7 pm. Tickets are $15.00, no seniors or student discount (cash or check only).
Call (908) 879-7304 for reservations.

The Chester Theatre Group's Black River Playhouse is located at the corner of Grove and Maple Streets in the borough of Chester, New Jersey. Free parking! Fine restaurants on Main Street.
