Chapatti, to play March 7-April 13, 2014, is billed this way: "Romance is a distant memory for two lonely animal-lovers living in Dublin. When forlorn Dan and his dog Chapatti cross paths with amiable Betty and her 19 cats, an unexpected spark begins a warm and gentle story about two people re-discovering the importance of human companionship."
Mahoney is a Chicago-area favorite whose credits at Northlight include The Outgoing Tide and A Life.
