Chester Meeting House Players to Present Earth and Sky

The Chester Meeting House Players will be presenting  Douglas Post’s murder mystery “Earth and Sky” at the Meeting House Oct. 29 & 30 and Nov. 5, 6, 12 & 13. 

“Earth and Sky” is a poetic thriller about a would-be poet and part-time librarian named Sara McKeon who’s lover of ten weeks, David Ames, is found dead one hot August morning in the city of Chicago. 

It appears that David, owner and manager of an expensive art-deco restaurant, may have been involved in several illicit activities including kidnapping, rape and murder.  Unable to believe the man she gave her heart to was a killer, and outraged that the police seemed to have closed the book on the case, Sara begins her own investigation of the crime and is led deeper and deeper through an urban labyrinth into a contemporary underworld. 

As the detective story moves forward in time, scenes from the love affair take us back to the moment when Sara and David first met.  Finally the plots converge and Sara finds herself face to face with the person who murdered her beloved. The piece is directed by Debbie Alldredge and features an ensemble of talented area actors.

Ticket prices are $15 for limited reserved seating and $10 for open seating.  To make reservations for both limited reserve and open seating tickets or for additional information and directions please call (860) 526-3684. The Meeting House Players is a not-for-profit community theatre organization.  We pursue the theatre arts with the talents and interests of people throughout Connecticut.
