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.

Peace in Our Time

Peace in Our TimeT0905579847
Defeated in war, can we ever survive the peace? Peace in Our Time envisions the Nazi war machine managing to fight through the Battle of Britain and landing on the island. The piece, as expected due to its subject matter, is unusual for its heavy tone, taking a darker approach than the comedic feel featured in most of Coward's plays. The play takes its title from the common misquotation of Conservative leader Neville Chamberlain's phrase during a massively publicized speech after he arrived back from the Munich Conference of 1938. While the British Prime Minister referred to having "peace for our time", the saying is often remembered as "peace in our time".
Author Noel Coward
