This Week in Chester
Tonight, Wednesday, at 8
pm the Chester Drama Society will premiere Malcolm Callaway's Christmas
farce "The Secret Diary of M" at the Chester Playhouse
. The play runs until Saturday evening. Tonight is "pay what you can."
Set on Oak Island, where
several groups have laid claim to the area, bizarre characters challenge
the theory of a hidden treasure left by pirates.
Unlike his summer works,
Malcolm's Christmas plays are not known for solid plots or deep
meaning. In fact, they have been said to be more shallow than a cookie
sheet.The Secret Diary of M (the Sequel) is no exception. Intended for
those who tire of the commercialization of Christmas, laughter is the
one constant in the Chester Drama Society's Christmas plays.
