Chesapeake

By Lee Blessing
Directed by Shawn Douglass
March 28 – May 6, 2012

In a strained political season, the provocative work of one performance artist comes up against a conservative senator running for re-election. The senator has a lovable dog, a charming, folksy manner and a campaign to cut frivolous spending. The artist has a plan for one final shocking performance with his public funds. How much could a dognapping really cost, anyways?

Artistic Associate Greg Matthew Anderson stars in this one-person comedy about a conservative senator, the performance artist he demonizes, and the lovable Chesapeake Bay retriever called Lucky.
