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.
A Scattering - Reid's award-winning lyrical narrative, written in response to the death of his wife, articulates beautifully emotions which most of us find hard to express. It won the Costa Book of the Year Award in 2009. Performed with original composition for viola and cello by Tom Smail. The Song of Lunch - A lunch at an Italian restaurant in Soho - an attempt to rekindle an old flame. As the wine flows, nostalgia gives way to something closer to the truth. Poignant and hilarious, The Song of Lunch is a superbly crafted drama of a disastrous date. Performed with an animated setting by the Daily Telegraph's Alex cartoonist Charles Peattie.
