Production Details

A Chorus Of  Disapproval      

by      Alan Ayckbourn


Directed by Clive Brynley-Jones

Assistant Director - Doris Brynley- Jones

Director's Note

A young man, somewhat lacking in confidence and recently widowed, joins the Pendon Amateur Light Operatic Society. He is given a very small part in the Society's forthcoming production of John Gay's The Beggar's Opera. A catologue of events then conspires to advance him rapidly from obscurity to local fame. Alan Ayckbourn very cleverly uses songs from the Beggar's Opera to parody the lives and actions of the real lives of the various members of the cast. At times Ayckbourn's humour can be described as cruel but it shows how ill equiped the British tend to be when dealing with real feelings, in public.
