A Chorus Of Disapproval

A-Chorus-of-Disapproval articleby Alan Ayckbourn

 

4-Stars  Scotsman

 

"Polished mix of enthusiasm and fear makes for compelling viewing" The Times

 

“I wish to God they were professionals. Then I could sack them.”


Nothing if not ambitious, the Pendon Amateur Light Operatic Society is taking on The Beggar’s Opera. And The Beggar’s Opera is winning . . . until, that is, a personable but shy widower, Guy Jones, joins the team . . .


Despite being an instant hit with the company’s energetic, excitable director, Dafydd Llewellyn, and PALOS’s female members - including Dafydd’s wife, Hannah - the inexperienced Guy seems destined for a spot in the chorus. But then a series of casting mishaps propel Guy up the PALOS ladder - on and off the stage. And as he climbs closer and closer to the top, Guy - a man all too susceptible to wine, women and song - discovers that there are downsides to being a big fish in a small pond . . .


Alan Ayckbourn is the most popular and most often performed living playwright at PFT. Hailed by some as his greatest play, A Chorus Of Disapproval is also the funniest and most wickedly accurate portrait of am dram life ever created. Not seen on PFT’s stage since 1995, this acclaimed, laugh-out-loud comedy is guaranteed to be one of the stars of 2013!

“ . . . a serious comic masterpiece: brilliantly constructed, ruthlessly observant, hilarious, and hard as nails.” The Sunday Times

 
Stewart Miller is delighted to sponsor A Chorus Of Disapproval and to dedicate it to his grandchildren: Lindsey, Murray and Catriona Irvine.
