The Killing of Sister George

25/10/17 - 28/10/17

Venue: The Forum Studio Theatre

"Sister George" is a beloved character on a popular BBC soap opera, a cheerful nurse who bicycles about the countryside singing hymns and doing good. In private life, June Buckridge the actress, is a swaggering, foul-mouthed, alcoholic in a long-term relationship with waifish Alice "Childie" McNaught. Due to low ratings, cut-backs and June's own bad behavior, the BBC decides to "kill Sister George" on the series. A visit from Miss Mercy Croft, a no-nonsense network executive bearing the bad news sends George into meltdown, which results in "Childie's" retreat to the arms of Mercy.

This production includes smoking on stage in accordance with the exemption under the Public Health Act 2006 and with the consent of Cheshire West and Chester Council.
