CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.

What is currently on at Viaduct Theatre (V1025)


A Queen, Alcestis, gives up her life to save her king. The King, wracked by guilt, contemplates a future without her. But will Apollo's prediction that Alcestis will return from the dead come true? Poignant, tragic and intensely moving, with episodes of burlesque comedy, Alcestis is a potent drama based on a Greek play by Euripedes. Ted Hughes brings his talents as a poet and playwright to bear in this surprisingly contemporary version, filled with verbal brilliance and captivating story telling - his last masterpiece.
Author Euripedes
