Press Release Chesil Theatre
20 August 2012
Booking now open for six exciting productions
Winchester’s best-loved theatre company, the Chesil Theatre, has announced details of its coming season. Starting in October with the play “Entertaining Angels” by Richard Everett, the Chesil continues to build on its reputation of presenting a diverse programme of drama; from comedy to tragedy, classic to contemporary, the six productions offer something for everyone.
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.’
