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.
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 looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
An international group of church leaders converge in an African hotel to contend the need for Christian doctrine to change with the times. People here want God. Here where we live there is still pestilence and plagues, evil emperors, corruption - demons for some. When we look to the bible we do not see âstoriesâ like you. We see truth. Fierce theological debate demonstrates that whatâs current thinking on one continent is abhorrent to another. In a neighbouring room, a brief sexual encounter between Joseph, a local porter, and Michael, a British conference volunteer, leads to a direct and potent challenge both to Michael, as he returns to England to grapple with ethics of his own, and to the liberal claims and professed compassion of the affluent West and its church. Heâs a man. First and foremost. Who needs help. Drew Pautzâs tense and provocative new play considers what we may be willing to sacrifice, personally and in the public sphere, for what we believe to be right.
