Tudor Players presents
A Chorus of Disapproval
By Alan Ayckbourn
Tuesday 15th – Saturday 19th October, 7.15pm
A diffident widower attempts to escape loneliness by joining the local amateur light opera society.  By accident rather than design, in fact 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 from a small part to the lead.
“A brilliance and invention remarkable even by Ayckbourn’s standards.”
“Psychologically acute and painfully, heart breakingly funny.”
Parallels are skilfully drawn between The Beggar’s Opera and the day to day activities of the amateur society which is performing it.
Tickets: £10.00 (£9.00 concessions), available from:
