Chime's Approach

CHIME'S APPROACH, an original play by local playwright, Robert Covelli

Teatro Paraguas
will host a reading of Chime’s Approach by Robert Covelli at 6:00 pm on Sunday, February 23, 2020. Doors open at 5:30. Admission by donation at the door, seating on a first come/first serve basis.

The play, directed by David Carter, follows a psychiatrist who resists pressure from wealthy conservatives to diagnose a murderer as incapable of standing trial. The suspect, a patient in the mental hospital that employs the psychiatrist, may have shot and killed a doctor who performed abortions. Chime’s Approach reveals the truth.

Long a resident of Santa Fe, Mr. Covelli said, “Abortion signifies what threatens American democracy. It’s liberty as personal as it can possibly be. It defies government and religion as they try to dictate individual behavior. I wrote my play because I wanted to dramatize these convictions.” 

Directed by David Carter, the cast includes Robyn Rikoon, Marguerite Scott, Matt Sanford, David Carter, and Argos MacCallum.
