The Graduate5 - 12 Sep

The Graduate

“The Graduate” first caught attention as a best selling novel by Charles Webb. It then hit the headlines as the hugely successful film that catapulted the unknown Dustin Hofmann into stardom. Then in April 2000 a stage version opened in the Gielgud Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue and caused a theatrical sensation.

For Services Rendered19 - 26 Sep

For Services Rendered

The chance to see a rarely performed British masterpiece.

The Times gave a 5-star review for Chichester’s recent production of “For Services Rendered”, as much for the beautifully crafted play – now considered as Somerset Maugham’s masterpiece – as for the production. Set within the innocuous “tea, tennis and bridge” rural middle-classes of the 1930s, the play exposes the corrosive legacy of the First World War. One of the most forthright anti-war plays ever written, with its perception of anti-patriotism hated by the audiences of its day, it explores themes which are as relevant now as they were then – from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to assisted suicide. A superb craftsman, Maugham also includes comedy – albeit very dark.
