We are delighted to re-open the theatre with a limited production of A.R Gurney’s “LOVE LETTERS”.  As a thank you for your valued and loyal support of The Theatre on Chester, we are offering this special production of 15 performances FREE OF CHARGE at the hall which is strictly adhering to COVID-19 rules and regulations.
Each performance will be undertaken by one of our three couples: Martin Bell and Alison Chambers (from Who’s Afraid of Virgina Woolf?), Joy and Tom Sweeney (from real life) and Melanie Robinson and Ian Boland(from God of Carnage).  Each weekend of the run there will be THREE evening performances which will start at 7.30pm and TWO Matinees which will start at 4pm.
The audience is limited to 22, and will be seated at tables which are spaced apart.  Sanitizers are available on entry and at tables.  The Hall has been thoroughly cleaned and will be cleaned again between performances.
Patrons are encouraged to bring their own picnic/supper with drinks.  Due to Covid regulations, we cannot offer our usual supper or any food and drink at all.
LOVE LETTERS deals with Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner who, as childhood friends, begin a lifelong correspondence which spans five decades.  A rare work of emotional richness, “Love Letters” was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1989.

This event has been offered first to members and subscribers but if you would like to attend please keep an eye on our Facebook page for an annoucment to the general public of any available seats.

The Theatre on Chester committee postponed our 2020 Love and Marriage season to 2021. Subscriber tickets have been automatically moved to the closest matching show so we will be ready to go in 2021!


We are sharing stories and photos from previous shows on our Facebook page to bring you joy and good memories during this time.
