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.


Play/Silence archiveBetrayal, lust and longing prevail in this double bill of plays about jealousy and unrequited love by two writers who defined a generation - Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter. This historic night of black comedy and lost souls is the first time these two giants of 20th Century playwriting have ever been presented together on the same stage. Brilliantly funny, Play famously features three flawed lovers up to their necks in giant urns. The lovers recount the glory, pain and folly of their former affair, doomed to replay their experience over and over, still none the wiser. In Silence another trio of lovers, lost in a rural hinterland, seek to connect with one another, desperate for their story not to become one of lost love. The Other Room is thrilled to present Play and Silence together. The two short pieces reflect one another beautifully as they crack open the human experience. A tiny but epic evening of love, heartbreak and hope.

Author Samuel Beckett. Author Harold Pinter.
