About The Play
Dramedy. Flexible cast of 8-50+. 80-90 minutes. Suitable for middle school and older.
Dear Chuck was developed and produced by the Choate Rosemary Hall Summer Arts Conservatory (Wallingford, CT). The play was later expanded into this longer version, while a one-act minute version also exists.
"We just finished our first show today and it was AMAZING!! The audience loved the play, our actors had a fantastic time performing and the credit really goes to the amazing script." - Premela Rajasegaran, Singapore Polytechnic Theatre Compass (Singapore)
Teenagers are typically caught in the middle—they're not quite adults, but they're definitely no longer children. Through a series of scenes and monologues, we meet an eclectic group of teen characters who are trying to communicate with that wannabe special someone, coping with the loss of a classmate, battling controlling parents, swimming for that island of calm in the stormy sea of technology—and many others. What they all have in common is the search for their "Chuck," that elusive moment of knowing who you are.
