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 celebrated, controversial singer/songwriter Kieran OâConnell is imprisoned for perjury he rapidly discovers that fame does nobody any favours on the inside. Disregard for the rules of prison, both written and unwritten, soon puts him further at odds with the authorities and inmates alike. His one salvation may be the Education Unit where his presence is begrudgingly sought as a means to make claim to a prison rock group. But will music prove to be the food of love - or feed jealousy and resentment? With a fantastic soundtrack, featuring iconic songs previously recorded by The Beatles, Bob Marley, The Who, The Pretenders, Bruce Springsteen, Graham Parker, Alice Cooper, Snow Patrol and The Stereophonics. Contains strong language. World Premiere Performers Stephen Gray (Kieron O'Connell), Stuart Neal, Peter Moreton, John Elkington, Adam Deacon, Cymon Allen, Nick Haverson, Leon Lopez, Nicole Faraday.
