Chester Theatre Club are involved in a spot of Blue Sky thinking this week.

Under the Blue Sky, directed by Andy Hutchings, opened on July 2 at the Newtown theatre and runs until Saturday, July 9.

The play that looks at the full spectrum of love. In three subtly-linked acts, three pairs of teachers discuss love and lust with boldness and honesty, as the playwright studies unrequited affection, obsession, sex, and even being happy.

Nick and Helen (Jess Toyne and Ally Goodman) have been friends for three years since they slept together once, but they’ve got very different feelings about Nick taking a new job at a public school.

In the next act, a drunken Michelle (Leah Bell) is very determined to sleep with her faithful confidant, the virginal history teacher Graham, but the recital of her various liaisons leads to a sinister reversal of the seduction.

Finally, two older teachers, Robert and Anne, who have spent the school holidays together for many years, look up at the sky and begin to hope they could be happy.
