THE latest production of Alan Ayckbourn’s A Chorus of Disapproval at Salisbury Playhouse provided a pleasant and funny evening out last week. 

Clocking in at two hours and 40 minutes, the show is the 35th Ayckbourn play that has been performed at Salisbury Playhouse.

Artistic director Gareth Machin leads a diverse group that includes Robert Bowman (playing (Dafydd Ap Llewellyn), Rebecca Cooper (Hannah Llewellyn), Damian Humbley (Guy Jones) and many others.

Recently widowed Guy joins his local amateur light operatic society, in hope of finding new friends and meaning in his life - but ends up with a lot more than he bargained for! In their upcoming production of The Beggar’s Opera, Guy starts out playing a part with only one line, but his good looks and mild manners soon see him climb his way to the leading role.

Unable to say no to wine, women and song, Guy finds himself embroiled in a series of backhand deals, steamy affairs and pub brawls.

The twists and turns keep the audience engaged and guessing (and laughing) throughout. 
The show continues until May 18, with ticket prices beginning at £13.

Special features include a post-show Q&A on May 8, BSL/captioning on May 14, and audio described and touch tours on May 16.
