Chatham Playhouse Debuts Play Reading Series with "Die Mommy Die" ONE NIGHT ONLY


die The Chatham Community Players begin their new play reading series with Charles Busch's "Die Mommy Die". One Night ONLY - Sunday November 22, 2015 at 7:30 at the Chatham Playhouse, 23 North Passaic Avenue, in Chatham. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door.

A comic melodrama that evokes the 1960’s "grande guignol" films that featured aging stars such as Bette Davis, Joan Crawford and Lana Turner. Ex-pop singer, Angela Andrews, is trapped in a hateful marriage with film producer Sol Sussman. Desperate to find happiness with her younger lover, an out of work TV actor, Tony Parker, Angela murders her husband with the aid of a poisoned suppository. In a plot that reflects Greek tragedy as well as Hollywood kitsch, this play ends with a surprise ending.
