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 and May is actually postponed or cancelled.

The Visit or The Old Lady Comes to Call

The Visit or The Old Lady Comes to CallT223705463
Friedrich Durrenmatt's visionary revenge play, transported into mid-20th-century America by Tony Kushner (Angels in America). In the town of Slurry, New York, post-war recession has bitten. Claire Zachanassian, improbably beautiful and impenetrably terrifying, returns to her hometown as the world's richest woman. The locals hope her arrival signals a change in their fortunes, but they soon realise that prosperity will only come at a terrible price.
Author Friedrich Durrenmatt
Adapted by Tony Kushner
