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).

Lisa's Sex Strike archiveDescribed as the topical comedy for 2007, Blake Morrison re-works Aristophanes' classic comedy, Lysistrata, to take on the great issues of our time - race, war, religion, terrorism and sexual morality - with disturbing hilarity. It’s 2007 in the northern mill-town of Blackhurst and intolerable racial tensions are tearing the mixed community apart. Summat MUST to be done, and sharpish. Radical behaviour requires a radical plan, and Lisa hatches an outrageous plot to encourage peace - a sex strike - no more nooky ‘til the fighting stops, with riotously funny consequences. But as the women of Blackhurst strive towards love...not war...they make a disturbing discovery that turns their local dispute into a demonstration of global proportions. This play contains some sexually explicit language and is not suitable for children. World Premiere
