A Chorus of Disapproval
By Alan Ayckbourn


13-15, 19-22 July 2017 at 7.30pm

Matinée 22 July at 2.30pm




Pendon Amateur Light Operatic Society (PALOS) is staging a production of John Gay’s The Beggar’s Opera. (“It makes a change from The Student Prince.”) The director is a loud, energetic Welshman with all the subtle social skills of a breeze block. The love interest is played by his wife. A wide range of very recognisable characters, including stroppy daughter, bolshy barmaid, unsuitable boyfriend, local councillor and ambitious businessman, sit waiting for the director to reach their scenes in the show. And into this mix wanders Guy: a lonely, newly-widowed man, who is unable to say No to anything, whether it be a request for confidential business information or an offer of illicit sex, and through a series of accidents and actor tantrums he advances from a one-line part to playing the lead.  


The fourteen characters are singing, arguing, fighting, loving and laughing their way through this exceptionally funny and sometimes painful observation of life in community theatre. Come along and see who you recognise…
