2020 season is postponed to 2021

Stay in touch with us because we are planning something special when we can return

The Hypochondriac by Moilere Presented in 2015

It is with a heavy heart that the Theatre on Chester committee has decided to postpone our 2020 Love and Marriage season to 2021. We feel it isn’t right to risk the health of our members, volunteers or audience by going ahead with live performances at this time but that these plays deserve the full attention of our teams. Subscriber tickets have been automatically moved to the closest matching show so we will be ready to go in 2021!

We are making plans for events if we are able to have audiences in later this year so keep an eye out for updates from us.


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