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.

Carrying David

A compelling story of mental and physical courage, and the love that only brothers can understand. Glenn McCrory's rise from iron and coal scarred Annfield Plain, County Durham, to become the North East's only World Boxing Champion, leaps straight from the pages of The Boy's Own comic. A magnetic, articulate and charismatic character, his story is an inspiration for anyone who aspires to success. But very few know the real truth behind his rise to stardom. Carrying David is a remarkable dramatisation of the McCrory family, as seen through the eyes of Glenn's foster brother David, severely handicapped with a muscle wasting disease. Not expected to survive to fourteen, he defied all medical convention to enjoy life until he died at twenty nine. Powerless to move or speak through this unforgiving disease, he brought incredible love and joy into the lives of everyone he touched. Glenn and David were spiritually as one and whilst Glenn physically carried him as a young man, it was David's immense courage, humour and determination to live, that inspired Glen to become World Champion.
