Letter: Theatre of quality

Sir: While agreeing with Toby O'Connor Morse that the Salisbury Playhouse is a "purveyor of quality theatre", I cavil at his suggestion that the theatre serves only the "cathedral city's genteel middle classes" ("It may be Wilde, but it looks pretty tame", 18 September). I realise that he has to prove his metropolitan credentials to us provincial oiks, but not only does the Playhouse draw its audiences from far beyond its boundaries - easily a 30-mile radius or more - but many of us would resist the sobriquet "genteel".
