Chesil Theatre PresidentTom Williams said: ‘We are presenting an ambitious programme over the coming year. We have the steamy southern Tennessee Williams’ drama “A Streetcar named Desire”, an Andrew Davies’ witty play “Prin” about an embittered school principal, Shakespeare’s “Love’s Labours Lost”, Somerset Maugham’s war-time satire “Home and Beauty”, and black comedy “Colder than Here” by writer Laura Wade, author of West End hit “Posh”.
He went on: ‘We are always keen to attract new members, so I would invite the residents of Winchester and beyond to come to our read-throughs and auditions – you don’t have to be a member and you don’t have to prepare anything.’
