This Week in Chester
Tonight, Wednesday, is the opening performance of 2b Theatre's "When it Rains" at the Chester Playhouse at 7:30 pm. The show runs until Saturday with a 2 pm matinée that day. I saw this show a few years ago and I thought is was the most amazing piece of theatre I have ever seen. It's whacky, it's funny, it's dark. It makes you question who you are and where you fit in the grand scheme. This show has traveled all over the world and it is now here on your doorstep. You owe it to yourself to see this. Book now because it will be sold out after opening night.
The Lordly House museum is now open for the season every Tuesday-Saturday from 10-4 pm. This year's exhibit features Chester's home front activities during the Second World War. What exactly were they up to? For further information dial up 902-275-3842
