Wiltshire Creative reveal 2024 season with new plays by Chris Chibnall Sir Alan Ayckbourn

Wiltshire Creative has unveiled shows for its upcoming spring 2024 line-up.

Continuing the momentum of Salisbury Playhouse’s successful productions like The Girl on the Train and Jeeves & Wooster in Perfect Nonsense, the spring schedule is set to feature three dynamic in-house productions.

Kicking off the season is the world premiere of One Last Push, a fresh comedy by Chris Chibnall – known for his work on Broadchurch and Doctor Who. This play, delving into the comedic chaos of childbirth, will run from 15 February – 9 March.

Following this, Alan Ayckbourn’s hilariously crafted A Chorus of Disapproval takes the stage from 25 April – 18 May, showcasing a widower’s misadventures with an amateur operatic society, with the press night on April 30.

The spring’s third in-house production is a new adaptation of Philip Pullman’s Ghosts and Grimm Tales by the Wiltshire Creative’s Youth Theatre, running 25 – 27 July.
s that promise a season rich with entertainment.

Gareth Machin, the Artistic Director of Wiltshire Creative said: “I’m delighted that original drama is back centre stage at Salisbury Playhouse with the world premiere of Chris Chibnall’s new raucous comedy One Last Push alongside a packed and varied programme of high quality visiting work both at the Playhouse and Arts Centre, we know we are offering our audience a season brimming with entertainment.”

The visiting programme boasts an array of notable highlights, such as The Adventures of the Little Red Hen by Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company, making its Wiltshire debut, and SK Shlomo’s award-winning Breathe which merges beatboxing, storytelling, and technology into a groundbreaking show.
