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).

The Contractor archiveOne of the great post-war English plays, The Contractor also achieves one of the greatest theatrical coups - the raising, lining and dismantling of a huge marquee live on stage! First performed in 1969 (with a young Martin Shaw in the cast), this highly entertaining modern classic was then a major West End and Broadway hit. The Contractor's daughter is getting married and nothing will ever be quite the same again. Centred on a gang of workmen erecting the tent for the wedding, their joking, banter and camaraderie expose the changes happening in society in the Sixties. Funny and heartwarming, The Contractor is a bittersweet tale of three generations of a family, of work and love, hard graft and skiving.
Performers Paul Copley, Rachel Bell, Fergus O'Donnell, Sarah Howe, James Cash, Robert Oates, Helen Blatch, Terence Booth, Roger Morlidge, Ferdy Roberts, Stephen Kennedy, Niall Shanahan.
