He Comes For His Books is a new play by Chet Williamson, an Elizabethtown writer who is active on the Lancaster theater scene as both a playwright and actor.

This play is inspired by the breakup of playwright Harold Pinter and his wife, actress Vivien Merchant. Valerie is visited by her estranged husband, David, who wishes to take a number of his reference books from their flat. Valerie will only allow him to do so if he answers a series of questions about their relationship. Over the course of the evening, each discovers increasingly disturbing and cruelly funny revelations about the other.

The play is produced by The Creative Works of Lancaster and was selected for production from a group of plays written by members of the Lancaster Dramatists’ Platform, a group of local writers.

In addition to writing plays, Chet Williamson is the author of over twenty novels and a hundred short stories, which have appeared in The New Yorker, Playboy, Esquire and many other magazines and anthologies. His fiction has won numerous national and international awards. Another full-length play, Countenance, will be performed as a fully staged reading by EPAC in the fall.
