Chester Bailey

by Joseph Dougherty
Directed by Ron Lagomarsino

Chester Bailey’s imagination is a matter of life and death — it’s the one thing sustaining him as he recovers from a crippling assault. Set in a Long Island hospital in 1945, Chester denies the extent of his injuries as Dr. Phillip Cotton struggles to heal his unusual patient. Joseph Dougherty skillfully examines the enduring power of the human mind when it is faced with seemingly insurmountable horror.

“People argue about the existence of the soul. Why aren’t there intense debates about the imagination?”
