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.
East London 1888. Mr and Mrs Bunting's Mile End lodging house is miserably deserted, until a reclusive gentleman by the name of Sleuth arrives to rent a room, just as the Jack the Ripper's Whitechapel murders begin. Sleuth disappears every night into the East End proclaiming fire and brimstone to scourge society of sin. Even the suspicions of Mr Bunting are aroused. Mrs Bunting becomes obsessed by Sleuth and protects him with morbid maternal instincts. Performers Phillip Schofield, Ian Lindsay, Carolyn Lyster.
