'But it’s just one of those days. One of those days where I feel like I’m wearing myself on the outside. My heart, my soul, all my soft bits.'

Romance is a distant memory for two lonely animal lovers living in Dublin. When forlorn Dan and his dog Chapatti cross paths with the amiable Betty and her nineteen cats, an unexpected spark begins a warm and gentle story about two people re-discovering the importance of human companionship.

A beautifully poignant and extremely funny new play by Galway playwright Christian O'Reilly (The Good Father, Inside I'm Dancing) Chapatti makes its European debut in Galway following a critically acclaimed world-premiere run in Chicago this spring.

Festival favourite John Mahoney from TV's Fraiser, returns to the Galway stage following his superb performance in The Outgoing Tide in 2012. Mahoney stars opposite Penny Slusher who made her Festival debut in Stella & Lou last year.
