Chapatti is a love story between two people who have given up on the possibility of love. Dan lives alone in a Dublin flat and spends his time with his dog, Chapatti. Betty also lives alone — with her nineteen cats. Chapatti is a tender, funny, compassionate, and unsentimental play about second chances that relies on the power of the spoken word, the challenge of communication, and the complexity of lived and shared experience.
