Chatham Playhouse’s Play Reading Series: Wendy MacLeod’s “The House of Yes”- ONE NIGHT ONLY


The Chatham Community Players is excited to present Wendy MacLeod’s, “The House of Yes” as a part of their successful Play Reading Series. One Night ONLY – Sunday, February 11, 2018 at 7:00 at the Chatham Playhouse, 23 North Passaic Avenue, in Chatham. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door.  Sal Navarro directs.

“The House of Yes” is a play by Wendy MacLeod. A play about The Pascals, for whom the clock stopped with the Kennedy assassination, are shut in as a Thanksgiving hurricane swirls outside. Arriving ahead of the storm's eye are Jackie-O's twin brother, Marty and his fiancée Lesly. The obsessive Jackie is keen to renew her long-running incestuous affair with Marty, which is fine by the mother, who is still lamenting her husband's desertion, and by puppyish younger brother Anthony who immediately desires Lesly. The resulting battle over Marty becomes something of a class struggle between the Pascals' poetic insanity and Lesly's plebian pragmatism."

Debbie Bernstein as Mrs Pascal
Samantha Kaplan as Jackie-O
Scott Baird as Anthony
