Molly Sweeney (STUDIO) by Brian Friel - 20 to 23 Feb ’19
This play by one of Ireland’s foremost playwrights tells the story of Molly, a woman who has been blind from infancy, who undergoes an operation intended to restore her sight. We hear the story from the perspectives of Molly, her husband Frank, and the surgeon Paddy Rice, as three interwoven monologues that together form a powerful drama underscoring the connection between vision and understanding. Beautifully observed, this most thought-provoking play packs a huge dramatic and emotional punch.

Communicating Doors by Alan Ayckbourn - 18 to 25 May ’19
An ingenious comic thriller from the pen of our most prolific playwright whose work has been regularly performed on the Chads stage. Set in a hotel suite, the action moves backwards and forwards through time in two twenty year intervals. Can potential murder victims be saved by rewriting the past? What can Poopay Dayseer, a professional dominatrix, do to save herself from the murderous Julian and prevent the murders of Reece’s two wives? Ayckbourn at his most inventive.
