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).

Augustus Carp is a really good manâ¦ as he is the first to point out. Afflicted from birth by digestive disorders and the inability to get off a bus without falling over, Carp is nonetheless a model citizen, relentlessly pursuing the corruption that festers in all walks of public and personal life. Family man, supreme champion of the neglected sport 'Nuts in May', he uncovers the bizarre world of Edwardian Peckham that lurks round every corner. In an age when every standard of decent behaviour has been torn down, Carp is the man to place a higher example before us all. That is...until a cloud of diabolical misfortune threatens to blot out his horizon, bringing the kind of eye-watering disaster that happens when you reach for the stars but land on Uranus. Join him as he upends the crazy paving of suburbia to expose the wriggling truth beneath. Augustus Carp Esq. is the hilarious premiere of what has been described by Anthony.
