CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).
Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.
About the Show/Event
Information for Gatsby at Bristol Old Vic, Bristol (Play). Under a stormy sky, a young man digs for clams in the mud. In an instant, he's faced with a choice: Stay safe and scrabble in the dirt for a few extra dollars? Or risk everything - past, present and future - for the chance of a better life? In a post-war world of opportunity, ruthlessness and corruption, Gatsby gambles it all for a shot at the American dream. But when that dream is a commodity like any other, who really profits and who is forced to pay the price? As the US votes on its next president, this radical reimagining of Scott Fitzgerald's literary classic takes us back to the moment when the power structures of today took root.
