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.
Offering a uniquely female perspective on war, science and the advance of chemical weapons, this is a multimedia show of epic scale and intricacy. Clara Immerwahr, wife of the famed chemist Fritz Haber, is profoundly disturbed when her husband's research leads to the development of chlorine gas during the First World War. Over 30 years later, her granddaughter, a scientist committed to finding a poison gas antidote, faces similar despair. Performed in English and some German with accompanying English surtitles.
