THE PLAY 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.
