Most seasoned voters, wherever they cast their ballots, might recall a fabled local candidate who despite never winning, continues to run and run and run. Year after year, election after election, in the same tattered tweed jacket, Jim ‘Buddy’ Chum is undeterred by yet another embarrassing rejection. He’s the punchline for a running joke about a joker who keeps running…and losing. Buddy is Fishtown, Massachusetts’ forever Mayoral candidate on a quixotic campaign for his shot at the top office – he’s not against progress, he just doesn’t want to be around when it gets here.
Building on the sold-out response to the 2019 NeverDark staged reading, the world premiere production of Think of Me Tuesday directed by Robert Walsh runs October 1 through October 17. Performances are socially-distanced indoors Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 pm and Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 pm indoors at Gloucester Stage Company, 267 E Main St., Gloucester MA.
