"Chesapeake" by Lee Blessing

When: Fridays-Sundays, 8 p.m., Sundays, 2 p.m. and Thursdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Feb. 28 2016

In Blessing’s play, when conservative candidate Therm Pooley’s criticism of performance artist Kerr’s government-sponsored performance lands him a Senate seat, the artist seeks revenge. The centerpiece of Pooley’s political career is his dog Lucky, whose tricks ingratiate Pooley to voters. Kerr seeks to kidnap and retrain Lucky as the ultimate performance-art piece, but his attempt is foiled by a mysterious and supernatural transformation that brings him closer to Pooley than he ever imagined.
