The Chatham Community Players is excited to present Wendy MacLeod’s The House of Yes as a part of their successful Play Reading Series.

The House of Yes is a play by Wendy MacLeod. A play about The Pascals, for whom the clock stopped with the Kennedy assassination, are shut in as a Thanksgiving hurricane swirls outside. Arriving ahead of the storm's eye are Jackie-O's twin brother, Marty and his fiancée Lesly. The obsessive Jackie is keen to renew her long-running incestuous affair with Marty, which is fine by the mother, who is still lamenting her husband's desertion, and by puppyish younger brother Anthony who immediately desires Lesly. The resulting battle over Marty becomes something of a class struggle between the Pascals' poetic insanity and Lesly's plebian pragmatism."

The Cast:

  • Debbie Bernstein as Mrs Pascal
  • Samantha Kaplan as Jackie-O
  • Scott Baird as Anthony
  • Gus Ibranyi as Marty
  • Sky Spiegel Monroe as Lesly
