Clear your schedule for one of the most talked about series of 2017 as season one of “THE HANDMAID’S TALE” comes to DVD on 5th March from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. The 3-disc set also includes two brand new featurettes that take viewers deeper into the world of Gilead.
Based on Margaret Atwood’s award-winning, best-selling novel, “THE HANDMAID’S TALE” is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly known as the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birth rate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state.
As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss; Top Of The Lake, Mad Men) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the castes of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world. In this terrifying society where one wrong word could end her life, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – with one goal: to survive and find the daughter who was taken from her.
“THE HANDMAID’S TALE” features outstanding performances from Elizabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes (American Horror Story – Asylum, Shakespeare in Love), Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck, Dexter), Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls), Madeline Brewer (Orange is the New Black), Ann Dowd (Compliance, The Leftovers), O.T. Fagbenle (The Five), Max Minghella (The Mindy Project) and Samira Wiley (Orange is the New Black).
The critically-acclaimed series from MGM Television is the winner of eight Primetime Emmy® Awards including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series (Moss) and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Dowd). The series also received two Golden Globe® Awards for Best Television Series—Drama and Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series—Drama (Moss) and three Critics’ Choice Awards for Best Drama Series, Best Actress in a Drama Series (Moss), and Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Dowd). The Blu-ray and DVD include two fascinating behind-the-scenes featurettes on the making of the show, “From Script to Screen” and “Hope in Gilead.”
Don’t miss “THE HANDMAID’S TALE” available on DVD on 5th March.

Here at We Are Chester HQ, we’ve been thoroughly enjoying panto season this year. We recently headed over to Theatr Clwyd to watch Sleeping Beauty, as well as squeezing in a cheeky visit to the Forum Studio Theatre to see Cinderella. Oh yes we have! We’ve also enjoyed a trip to Ellesmere Port Civic Hall to watch Dick Whittington, and this time we’re off to Anton Benson Productions’s sister show, Aladdin over at Northwich Memorial Court. Over to Tori Erskine to tell us more. Photos: Tori Erskine.
As we took our seats in the theatre, on stage we were greeted by a bright, glimmering curtain with Aladdin written on it, ready to go up for the show to begin. The theatre was filled with excited families, and also a number of adults scattered around to watch the show too – proving panto is for everyone, not just the kids.

Panto season has well and truly arrived at the Forum Studio Theatre in Chester, and with an unbelievable bang too.
Filled with all the ‘He’s behind you!’ and ‘Oh no it isn’ts!’ you’ll ever need, Cinderella is sure to get you set for the festivities.
Admittedly, the last time I had been to visit a pantomime was when I was in primary school (it’s very scary and shameful to admit that was about 15 years ago), so I was ready to relive my childhood and enjoy some fairytale magic.
