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. 
Tickets are racing out the front door.  902 275-3933
