CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
Will Lorna and Thorn's affair survive the storylines? When it comes to love, nothing is simple in Soapland. Just when it seemed that beach boy Thorn's future is all mapped out, up pops a surprise in the shape of pub landlady Lorna. It may have been written in the stars that Thorn would marry adoring childhood sweetheart, the dizzy Noleen. But Lorna's unscripted arrival causes storylines to merge and unravel. It soon becomes clear that more than the ratings are at stake in this satire about a bigger world. Performers Mark Bannerman, Paul Fox, Janice McKenzie, Lucy Speed, Natalie Walter.
