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.

Production details

Rural Wales in the 1850s, in the immediate aftermath of the Crimean War. Dilys Parry lives in Blestin, a mountain village which has no children and worships no god since a disaster snatched away all its youth. Inconsolable since her husband was killed in the war, Dilys is gradually re-awakened to life when a prophet-like child working in her household is called by God to serve the world on an extraordinary new mission. ?And when a flashy showman from Birmingham arrives in the village, intent on exploiting the boy for financial gain, he too suddenly finds his life completely transformed by his conversion to the child's message. In the shadow of vast social inequalities and a mismanaged war, one small community rediscovers its lost faith, with startling consequences for the village, and the world beyond...
