Ghent Playhouse Presents the Psychological Chamber Piece “The Chalk Garden”

[GHENT, NY] – The Ghent Playhouse kicks off the second half of its 2019-2020 season with “The Chalk Garden,” by the British author and playwright Enid Bagnold, best known for the 1935 story “National Velvet.” Directed by Cathy Lee-Visscher, “The Chalk Garden” runs January 31-February 16.

When enigmatic Miss Madrigal is hired as household companion and manager, the two finally meet their match.”
