A Chorus of Disapproval
One of Ayckbourn's funniest and best loved comedies, A Chorus of Disapproval
centres on a diffident widower who attempts to escape from his loneliness by joining the local amateur list operatic society. By not saying 'no' to anything, be it a request to obtain confidential information from his company or an offer of illicit sex, he advances, by accident rather than design, from a one-line part to the lead. Ayckbourn's script shows us how painfully embarrassed are the British in the face of emotion and keeps us laughing in happy recognition.
