CHESTER: Chester Music Society Choir present Faure's Requiem with choir and organ at St Thomas of Canterbury Church in Parkgate Road at 8pm. Faure’s Requiem is one of the most popular of all choral works. Written by the composer in memory of his parents, it is a gentle, reflective piece that provides comfort for those left behind. Faure was a great melody writer, and several movements, including the famous Pie Jesu, as well as the Agnus Dei, are based around melodies which stay with the listener long after the performance. This short concert of just over an hour, followed by refreshments, will include other, shorter works to contrast and show the choir’s many talents. Free admission, donations welcome.

This fresh, adaptation of Henry James’ much-loved and genre defining classic ghost story lets you draw your own conclusions about the events at Bly and where guilt resides. The original inspiration for Susan Hill’s The Woman in Black and numerous films, don’t miss this thought-provoking, stylish, edge-of-your-seat show! Tickets from £10. Call 01352 701521 or visit www.theatrclwyd.com.

MOLD: Louder is Not Always Clearer in the Clwyd Room at Theatr Clwyd at 8pm. Jonny is a teacher, a workshop leader and an avid football fan. Jonny is deaf. He was born deaf to hearing parents who were afraid that disability would stigmatise their son. Louder Is Not Always Clearer is an honest portrayal of the vulnerability of a deaf man, created and performed by a deaf man. For a hearing audience it is an illuminating and emotional experience. For deaf audience members the show is a familiar tale of misunderstanding and isolation. For all audiences it is a humorous and at times moving story of one man’s attempt to cope, to fit in and be accepted. Tickets from £10. Call 01352 701521 or visit www.theatrclwyd.com.
