CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
In a sinister 1950s Britain, the country is under the rule of the violent and oppressive Motherland. Dark government forces are at work. Spies and surveillance are everywhere, and the truth is difficult to discern. Meet our hero Standish Treadwell: he is fifteen, he lives with his grandpa, and although his teachers are part of the regime, together he and grandpa are safe. But then one day, Standish's best friend disappears. And suddenly all their lives are in terrible danger. Can Standish be the hero who will save them all? Live drawing, cameras and projection bring Sally Gardner's dazzlingly original, award-winning novel to life, in this story about protecting the ones you love and having the courage to stand up for what you believe.Performers James Day (Hector), James Newton (Standish).
