CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Bluebird is Simon Stephensâ first play and, as the title suggests, the centre piece of the story is a Nissan Bluebird. The play follows Jimmy, a mini cab driver, on the course of one night as he picks up a variety of 'fares', each one sharing their own individual stories; from Robert whose daughter was stabbed to death, to Richard, disillusioned with life as an engineer on Londonâs underground to his own estranged wife Claire, forcing him to face his own demons. Bluebird brilliantly displays Stephensâ concern with the constant battle between pessimism and that tiny fragment of hope. AuthorSimon Stephens.DirectorRob Ellis.
