The Connecticut Irish Theater Troupe is proud to present this years play production CHANCERS written by Robert Massey and Directed by Geoffrey Herpok.
Chancers is thought-provoking and humorous whilst showing us there’s more than one way to win the lotto.
Dee and Aiden Farrell are a decent couple facing tough times. Hard hit by Ireland’s recession, they’ve had to rent their home to strangers, a rough shower from Dublin, and move their family into their almost bankrupt convenience store. On the verge of losing it all a chance of money comes their way, via an unpleasant and opportunistic neighbor. Can local battleaxe Gertie Graham save them from financial ruin? She has the ticket to a brighter future, if only they can get their hands on it. Buoyed by their friend, JP, who has struggles of his own, they’re forced to wrestle with their consciences to decide just how desperate times need to be to justify desperate measures
The show will run on June 7th & 8th at 7:30pm and a Sunday matinee June 9 at 5pm.
