We can now reveal the confirmed production for June 2016. It is the comedy, A Chorus of Disapproval by Alan Ayckbourne and it is to be presented at The Assembly Rooms, Ludlow the week commencing 13 June.
A diffident widower attempts to escape loneliness by joining
the local amateur light operatic society. By accident rather than
design (in fact, by not saying “no” to anything be it a request to
obtain confidential information from his company or an offer of
illicit sex) he advances from a small part to the lead. Parallels
are drawn between The Beggar’s Opera and the day to day
activities of the society which is performing it.
