CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Few people today know there was once a thriving Chinatown in London's East End. This promenade production at the historic Limehouse Town Hall will take you on a journey into this forgotten world. It starts in Limehouse in 1958 when the local council is planning to bulldoze the last remnants of Limehouse Chinatown. As the local community decides how to embrace this redevelopment without losing their heritage, former Limehouse resident Eileen Cunningham returns to start a revolution... Delving straight into the heart of London's original Chinatown, this site specific production will explode the lurid myths of opium dens and sinister Chinese gangs, to reveal a place that was for generations of people, simply home.Performers Jonathan Chan, Sara Houghton, Matthew Leonhart, Amanda Maud, Gabby Wong.
