About CHESAPEAKE

This playful and smart comedy explores the age-old questions, “What is art?”, “Who decides which art is worthy?”, and “What kind of art deserves public funding?” A liberal, provocative performance artist at odds with a conservative southern senator hatches a plot to kidnap the senator’s beloved dog hoping to squelch threats of National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) funding cuts. When a twist of fate brings these nemeses together, chaos ensues and karma bites back. Called “eloquent” by Variety, Chesapeake gives new meaning to the term “man’s best friend.”

If we could only relate man-to-man as we do dog-to-dog, things might be a lot more pleasant.

"Lyman delivers a superb, many-shaded portrayal. She brings intelligence, wit, and an expressive, long-limbed physicality to a part that is typically played by male actors."

"Lyman portrays Kerr with a force that should kick her career into high gear. The sole actor in the show, Lyman takes full, entertaining command as she transitions among a range of characters including Kerr, the hilarious and searing Senator Pooley and his dog," applauds WGBH's Jared Bowen!

"Bringing all that home is Georgia Lyman, who turns in a terrific performance as Kerr."
