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 to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.
When Topsy - poet and designer William Morris - takes a dreamy Oxfordshire manor house for the summer of 1871 the whisper goes round that it is to make the very public affair between his wife Janey and close friend Dante Gabriel Rossetti less conspicuous. The tensions between the three of them create an emotional undertow that keeps threatening to break surface. When Morris leaves them to their sanctuary and goes abroad as the alchemy of love works unexpected changes. Performers Saffron Burrows (Janey Morris), Alan Cox (Dante Gabriel Rossetti), Sean Gilder (John Hennie), Nigel Lindsay (William Morris).
