Alan Ayckbourn’s riotous comedy, A Chorus of Disapproval, is at the Harold Pinter Theatre from 17th September and is packed full of names we all know and love, as well as a highly talented team directing and producing – directed by Trevor Nunn. Tickets are now available at TheatreTickets.net.
Joining the trio on stage will be Teresa Banham, Daisy Beaumont, Georgia Brown, Rob Compton, Matthew Cottle and Steven Edis with further casting to be announced shortly.
The story goes a bit like this – The Pendon Amateur Light Operatic Society’s production of The Beggar’s Opera is going off the rails, that is until a handsome but shy young widower Guy (Harman) joins the group. An instant hit with the company’s ferociously zealous director Dafydd (Brydon) and the leading ladies in the show, including Dafydd’s wife Hannah (Jensen), Guy soon gets more than he bargained for as he discovers that all the best action happens off-stage. Classic songs fill the air as the drama on stage is mirrored by the romantic rivalry and small town squabbles causing a stir in the wings of this ambitious local show.
This Autumn will see the return of A Chorus of Disapproval for the first time in over 25 years when it was a big hit at the National Theatre. The show is aiming to steal the limelight this time around as well.
