CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020, work is underway to re-open safely. 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. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
May Day is looming, and the small town of Loxford is in chaos. All the potential May Queens are morally unsuitable. Desperate, the locals decide a May King will have to do instead. They choose the blameless Albert Herring, from the greengrocers. He isn't keen, but stuck firmly under his mother's thumb, he'll do what he is told. However, after one rum-laced lemonade at the May Day ceremony, Albert disappears, and even greater chaos ensues. Britten's sharply satiric take on village life makes for a glorious and very English comedy. Sung in English. A revival of the 1985 production sponsored by Riggs and Co - International Private Banking. The performance lasts approximately two hours and fifty minutes including one interval.Performers Hal Cazalet (Albert Herring), Rita Cullis (Lady Billows), Susan Gorton (Florence Pike), Sarah Fox (Miss Wordsworth), Andrew Rupp (Mr Gedge), Peter Hoare (Mr Upfold), Brindley Sherratt (Superintendent Budd), Jeremy Carpenter (Sid), Louise Poole (Nancy), Frances McCafferty).
