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).
Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021.
Interrogating ideas of hero worship, Dark Sublime follows an unlikely new friendship as an old one fractures. Oli arrives at the door of a now-forgotten sci-fi icon - impatient to make friends, and to make something of his life. Marianne, a jobbing actress, knows about waiting - for the phone to ring, for her best friend to see her differently, for her turn at something more substantial than a half-remembered role on a cult TV show. He wants an autograph; she doesn't want anything from him. Yet as they start to explore each other's worlds, they begin to discover what every good relationship needs: time and space.
