Lee Blessing will make a special appearance, reading his one-man show Chesapeake at Reed College, his undergraduate alma mater.
“A brilliantly off-kilter fantasy” (Newsday) about a performance artist the NEA, a Jesse Helms-type Senator, and the Senator’s dog. This one-man show features Kerr, a controversial artist at war with a conservative southern Senator and Lucky, his trusty pet Chesapeake Bay Retriever. In an attempt to push the boundaries of art and put Senator “Therm Pooley” in his place, Kerr attempts a daring dog-napping with hilariously tragic results.
Tickets are $35 and are available at profiletheatre.org.
