Written by Irish playwright John B. Keane, The Chastitute is set in rural Ireland in the 1970s at a time when society was changing rapidly. A bachelor farmer is searching for a “plain, decent woman” to share his life. He’s a “chastitute” or “a person without Holy Orders who has never lain down with a woman—a rustic celibate by force of circumstance.” The story follows the trials and tribulations the farmer endures in his pursuit to find a woman. Audiences will appreciate the comedy yet be moved by the unbearable solitude of a life without love and companionship.
The dramatic reading is free of charge. Those interested in attending should contact James Doan at (954) 262-8207 or firstname.lastname@example.org by March 31.
