The Chester Theatre Group presents The Other Place starting on Friday, September 23rd and extending for eight shows through Sunday, October 9th. Performances are Friday and Saturdays at 8:00 and Sundays at 2:00pm. Tickets are $20.00 with a discounted price of $18.00 for seniors over 65 and students under 18.

The Other Place is the story of Juliana Smithton, a successful neurologist whose life seems to be coming unhinged. Her husband has filed for divorce, her daughter has eloped with a much older man and her own health is in jeopardy. But in this brilliantly crafted work, nothing is as it seems. Piece by piece, a mystery unfolds as fact blurs with fiction, past collides with present and the elusive truth about Juliana boils to the surface. We find out happens when a brain researcher finds herself needing to take her own medicine?

Written by Sharr White, The Other Place received its world premiere Off-Broadway with MCC Theatre, featuring Laurie Metcalf (Lucille Lortel and Obie awards) and directed by Joe Mantello (Lucille Lortel nomination). The Other Place subsequently received its Broadway premiere at Manhattan Theatre Club with Joe Mantello again directing Laurie Metcalf (Tony nomination). The Other Place was also a recipient of the 2010 Playwrights First Award; the 2011 Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation’s Theatre Visions Fund Award; and was an Outer Critics Circle Award nominee for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play.

The talented cast of The Other Place includes Matt Meier of Long Valley in the role of Ian; Carla Kendall of Wayne in the role of Juliana; Joe Guardara of Mountain Lakes in the role of The Man; and Gianna Esposito in the role of The Woman. The production is directed by Jeff Knapp.
