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.
Three very different mothers face three very different situations. This is a play about the joy and heartbreak of motherhood. Ali is a ballet dancer and then she gives birth to Flora. "Her blood sugarâs a bit low, she has a hole in her heart - we donât know how serious that is. Oh, and sheâs Downâs Syndrome." Milena struggles to survive with her children in a country torn by war. "They told us, if you want to see your children alive, do as we say". Kitty is a housewife who had two daughters, now it seems she only has one. "Maybe when she has her own children sheâll feel the pull, need to revisit where she came from. And Iâll be here. Because thatâs what mothers are, they are home...They are safety. The centre of it all, where it went wrong or right, the beginning and end". Three stories for today in which the human spirit is tested to the utmost and triumphs. Performers Ishia Bennison, Erin Brodie, Mairead Carty, Pippa Duffy, Esther Ruth Elliot, Sarah Gordy, Finnian Hanlon, Sarah Mowat.
