New season announcement

Chads is pleased to announce the new season of plays for 2024/2025.

We open in September with Pack of Lies by Hugh Whitemore. A play about spies in the suburbs, still topical and based on a true story about a Soviet espionage network called the Portland Spy Ring. 

In the lead up to Halloween we have a ghost story. The Haunting of Hill House will put goosebumps on your goosebumps!

For Christmas we have the riotous farce Don’t Dress for Dinner and then in January we are doing The Unexpected Guest, a murder mystery by the Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie.

In March we have Florian Zeller’s poignant play about a man suffering from dementia – The Father.

We finish the main stage season with one of the best-known classics: Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen, adapted by Jessica Swale. 

Meanwhile in the Studio we have two plays: Blackbird by David Harrower, a dark, disturbing play about a man’s relationship with a girl;  and Murder, Margaret and Me by Philip Meeks, about Agatha Christie and the actress Margaret Rutherford who famously played Miss Marple.

There will be reading evenings in the Bar on Friday 23rd and Tuesday 27th February to allow everyone to sample the plays and the audition dates are Tuesday 12th March, Sunday 17th March and Sunday 24th March. Full details about the reading evenings and auditions will be sent out in due course.  For now please put these dates in your diaries, the Plays Selection and Casting Committee (PSCC) look forward to seeing you there.
