I And You – Chester Theatre Company

Chester Theatre Company has an impressive and intriguing line-up of plays for their 2017 season. Its motto, “Big Stories, Intimate Setting”  followed by  the sentence,  “Thought-provoking, contemporary theatre in the foothills of the Berkshires ” seems to be confirmed by the plays that are scheduled. The season starts  with I and You. a play by Lauren Gunderson who is currently one of the most produced playwrights in this country.

When we interviewed Kristen van Ginhoven, the play’s director, she explained I and You is about two high school students who are working on an assignment which is due the next day about Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass. They discover a great deal about themselves while exploring the poem.  When we interviewed her, Kristin had not yet started rehearsals. She since has. The play opens on June 28. You can go the website to order tickets.
