We are very sad to announce the death of Liz Stafford, who passed away on 14 September in the Hospice of the Good Shepherd. Here Liz is as Kate in Dancing at Lughnasa 2000. Liz was a stalwart member of Chester Theatre Club for many years, always involved in acting, directing, working backstage, and taking on crucial administrative roles, such as treasurer and box office manager. She was always cheerful, positive and a great asset to the Theatre. We will miss her greatly and all that she did for the Little Theatre and for live drama in Chester.
The picture below shows Liz in her last role as Mam in The Cripple of Inishmaan performed last March and, although she was not well, she threw herself into the part with her usual gusto and enthusiasm. She was nominated for this role by Cheshire Theatre Guild as Best Supporting Actress. Thank you, Liz!
