Photo Flash: In Rehearsal With The Chain Theatre's World Premiere CHASING THE RIVER
Chain Theatre presents world premiere production of Jean Dobie Giebel's CHASING THE RIVER, directed by Ella Jane New. CHASING THE RIVER, which was a finalist for the ATHE Excellence in Playwriting Award and has been optioned for TV, will play a limited Off-Broadway engagement at Chain Theatre (312 W. 36th Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10018).

Recently released from prison, a young woman returns to her childhood home - the scene of the crime that put her away when she was just a teenager. Still entwined in the memories of her tumultuous youth, she struggles to break free and focus on her future. Chasing the River is about survival, second chances and learning to bet on yourself.
