CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. 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. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
18 years of friendship. 1 tragic summer. 40 years to plot revenge... Simon Doucet has lost the best years of his life to prison. Once an impassioned schoolboy he is now nothing more than an embittered old man. When trusted to work with the female inmates of the neighbouring prison to put on a Passion Play, he seeks more than just the dramatic, he seeks revenge. With Bishop Bilodeau attending as the guest of honour, Simon uses the play to show his old friend Bilodeau what is truly hidden under his holy facade. Rather than the celestial biblical retelling the bishop expects, the play is much closer to his own human depravity. Bilodeau can only look on in powerless horror as he witnesses the prisoners fantastically and graphically recreate his obsessive love for Simon, his jealousy of the young Count Vallier, and the fateful events of the summer of 1912. Performers Darren Batten, Aidan Downing, Andrew Halliwell, Bill Hutchens, Kevin James, Sam Millard, Sebastian Palka, Steven Penn, Philip Scutt, Christopher Tajah.
