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.
Join Tron Theatre Company and Blood of the Young for a unique and colourful take on the definitive rom-com, Pride & Prejudice. Five vaguely familiar young women have a story to tell. You'll have seen them, emptying the chamber pots and sweeping ash from the grate, the overlooked and the undervalued making sure that everyone above stairs finds their happy ending. Because when you can't be the romantic lead in your own story, you have to play a supporting role in someone else's. Men, money and microphones will be fought over in this irreverent, all-female adaptation of Jane Austen's unrivalled literary classic. It's party time for Elizabeth, Darcy, Jane, Bingley and even those who never got names... Let the ruthless match-making begin. Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh and Bristol Old Vic present a Tron Theatre Company and Blood of the Young production Performers Tori Burgess, Christina Gordon, Hannah Jarrett-Scott, Isobel McArthur, Meghan Tyler, Felixe Forde.

Karen R (12Mar20): Absolutely brilliant! A fantastic romp, fast and furious, with all the wit of the original. The cast covered all the characters with panache. I laughed and laughed! I can't praise it highly enough.
