Chester’s cultural scene is gearing up for a rip-roaring new season.

The city’s longest-running theatre, Chester Little Theatre, has announced the opening play of its 2023/24 season.

Nestled on Gloucester Street in Newtown, the theatre is set to present the renowned comedy “Dirty Dusting” by Ed Waugh and Trevor Wood.

Directed by the seasoned Margaret Bennett, “Dirty Dusting” promises a hilarious and poignant narrative.

The plot unfurls in an everyday office, shining the spotlight on cleaners Elsie, Gladys, Olive, and their supervisor, Dave.

But this isn’t just a story about their daily cleaning routine. A twist of fate involving a wrong number and impending unemployment sees the ladies launching a saucy chat-line over a weekend.

With laughs guaranteed, audiences will be left pondering, “What could possibly go wrong?”

Margaret Bennett, sharing her thoughts on the play, remarked, “Dirty Dusting offers a delightful blend of comedy and poignancy, centred on strong-willed ladies facing adversity head-on. Though the storyline revolves around a risqué chat-line, the humour remains charmingly cheeky, inviting audiences into the lively world of Elsie, Gladys, and Olive.”

But the comedy is just the beginning of what’s shaping up to be a riveting theatre season.

The line-up features the Chester-based theatre company, Against The Grain, showcasing the intriguing murder mystery “Agnes of God” in October. Classics like Charles Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol” and Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting For Godot” are also on the docket, along with other gripping productions, ensuring that Chester Little Theatre remains the heart of the city’s theatrical pulse.

Those keen on joining in the laughter can book their tickets for “Dirty Dusting” online at the Chester Little Theatre website or by contacting TicketSource.

Theatre enthusiasts can enjoy the comedy from Saturday 16th to Saturday 23rd September, with performances commencing at 7.30 pm.

Notably, a matinee is also scheduled for 2.30 pm on Saturday 23rd September.
