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.
As Neville and Belinda Bunker prepare for the Festive Season, Neville has again forgotten to buy his wife a present, sister Rachel is in her usual state about her love life, Uncle Bernard is planning yet another of his interminable children's puppet shows, Uncle Harvey is growing more eccentric than ever, Patti and husband Eddie are at t heir customary loggerheads, whilst in the kitchen, Auntie Phyllis is drunk in charge of their dinner. All in all, just another typical Christmas for the Bunker family. Until, that is, something really disastrous occurs... AuthorAlan Ayckbourn.ProducerLeeds Arts Centre.DirectorMargaret Davey.
