CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
A rich young woman catches a pair of burglars in her bedroom, but instead of calling the police she decides to run off with them, and live off the proceeds of her own burglary. The three embark on a permanent beach holiday, a life of fabulous wealth and total freedom. Written in 1932, during the last great economic collapse, Too True To Be Good asks what we would do if we finally got everything we ever wanted. A bizarrely hilarious and unfortunately contemporary analysis of out-of-control wealth, this is a side of Shaw we rarely see - as the grand old man of the theatre leaves the drawing-room for the beach. First performed in New York and London in 1932, it has not been seen in London since 1975 (in a Royal Shakespeare Company production with Ian McKellen and Judi Dench that transferred to the West End) and 1986 (Mike Alfredsâ Shared Experience production at the Riverside Studios). In 2006, it played to great acclaim at Canadaâs Shaw Festival. Performers Steven Alexander, Alex Blake, Emily Bowker, Roger Braban, James Clarkson, James Hogg, Tai Lawrence, Olivia Lumley, Graham Seed, Jenny Lee.
