CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
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.Performers Rob Brydon (Dafydd ap Llewellyn), Nigel Harmen (Guy Jones), Ashley Jensen (Hannah Llewellyn), Teresa Banham (Enid Washbrook), Daisy Beaumont (Fay Hubbard), Georgia Brown (Bridget Baines), Rob Compton (Crispin Usher), Matthew Cottle (Ted Washbrook), Steven Edis (Mr Ames), Jessica Ellerby (Linda Washbrook), Barrie Rutter (Jarvis Huntley-Pike), Paul Thornley (Ian Hubbard), Susan Tracy (Rebecca Huntley-Pike).
