Our next show is

Speaking in Tongues

by Andrew Bovell

23 – 27 April 2024

A woman disappears. Four marriages become entangled in a web of love, deceit, sex and death. Who will survive? Nine parallel lives – interlocked by four infidelities, one missing person and a mysterious stiletto – are woven through a fragmented series of confessionals and interrogations that gradually reveal a darker side of human nature.

‘Bovell explores love, marriage, strangeness, intimacy, trust, betrayal, obsession, self-punishment and detachment with generous emotional intelligence’ – Observer
This amateur production of “Speaking in Tongues” is presented by arrangement with NICK HERN BOOKS
This production will be performed in the studio on the first floor, which is accessed by a flight of stairs.

Get Involved

Chads is run entirely by volunteer members and we are always on the look out for more people to join us. Even if being on stage is not your thing, there are a huge range of activities you can become involved with.

Chads Theatre was founded just after the First World War as Cheadle Hulme Amateur Dramatic Society, performing in different venues in the Cheadle Hulme area. In October 1959 the members opened their own premises and have continued to develop the Theatre ever since, providing a first class venue for its members and patrons. We currently perform six main stage and two studio plays each season, and the theatre and its members are the recipients of many awards.
