CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Glenn Chandler's beautiful adaptation of the well-known cult gay classic was one of the major critical hits at last year's Edinburgh Fringe. Set in Oxford in the 1960s, it tells the story of a love affair between a 19 year old undergraduate, David Rogers, and a precocious and beautiful Cathedral choirboy, Antony Sandel. When David is sent down after infringing college regulations, he is given a job as a teacher at the choir school - where Sandel is still a pupil. Add David's catholic friend Bruce, who is studying to be a priest, to the mix and the stage is set for a powerful showdown. Though even more controversial today than it was in the 60s, Sandel is nevertheless very funny, witty and light-hearted, a tale about what love can do in any age when it takes over your life. The uncompromising ending left Edinburgh audiences stunned in their seats. Sandel is bound to both delight and shock. Performers Ashley Cousins, Joseph Lindoe, Calum Fleming.
