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 ;-)
Simon Block s fierce, funny and penetrating exploration of love, loyalty and belonging, set among a group of disillusioned thirtysomethings. Ronnie, the original prodigal son, is fresh off the plane from Israel, looking to pick up the threads of his former life. But events have moved on. And when the new relationship of his younger sister, Cass, becomes the target of Ronnie s interference, her belief that blood is thicker than water starts to crack. Celebrating our differences and committing ourselves to uncertainty are, it seems, as hard to achieve in the personal arena as in the political. Performers Sarah Alexander, Tilly Blackwood, Simon Coates, Rebecca Egan, Guy Lankester, Ben Miles.
