A philosopher once called theater “the mask of convention over the face of society in the mirror of the unknown reflecting the rear-view of the sports car of destiny.” Simplify this theory with today’s theatrical Groupon for tickets to pride@prejudice, running from July 6 to July 17, produced by Chester Theatre Company, and performed in the Chester Town Hall. Choose between the following options:
• For $28, you get two tickets to a weekday performance, with showtimes Wednesday–Friday (up to a $56 value).
• For $33, you get two tickets to a weekend performance, with showtimes on Saturdays and Sundays (a $66 value).
Under the artistic direction of Byam Stevens, Chester Theatre Company's thespians enact stirring plays and often re-imagine classic works with the help of modern playwrights. pride@prejudice celebrates Jane Austen's classic novel by depicting a cyber-romance that intertwines bloggers, scholars, and the iconic author herself. Five actors assume more than 30 different roles and adroitly zip in and out of personas more quickly than Robin Williams at a speed-dating event. Speak your mind during feedback sessions with the artistic director after every performance or marinate your mind during a preshow lecture on Friday, July 8 at 7 p.m.
Chester Theatre Company's plots unfurl in the historic Chester Town Hall, which is tucked in the foothills of the Berkshires and morphs into a theater during summer months. Upon calling to reserve, Groupon customers will be given the best seats available in the theater.
