In Tina Howe's new comedy, CHASING MANET, a rebeliious painter from a distinguished family in Boston and an ebullient Jewish woman with a huge adoring family form on unlikely bond. Inside the confining walls of Mount Airy Nursing Home, the two plot an escape to Paris aboard the QE2. But can they possibly pull it off amidst the chaos of their surroundings? The tension and comedy grow as they struggle to take wing for the last time.
