CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
There aren't many south London builders who would sing along to La Traviata while slating a roof. This man was a brutal Methodist-Thatcherite. To support his family he worked more hours in more days than anyone else he knew. His home was his kingdom, and he ruled it with violence. The fact this man was Mark Thomas' dad is a fitting contradiction. So too is it that these men unexpectedly found a way to communicate through Opera. Mark turns the focus of his epic style of storytelling to his toughest target yet - himself. We fly through a world of hypocrisy, sledge hammers and arias in this funny and heart breaking new piece.
