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.
In 1946 Rebecca West arrives at the world s first ever war-crimes trial where she is witness to a young US lawyer who faces one of the most difficult cross examinations of his life - because although Hjalmar Schacht may not have been a mass murderer, he was the economist who made the Third Reich work. In a world where wars are waged, dictators overthrown and justice meted out, nothing is simple when idealism clashes with political reality. Rebecca West, journalist, novelist and critic, was described by Kenneth Tynan in 1954 as the 'the best journalist alive' and is perhaps best known for her book about the Nuremberg trials - The Meaning of Treason.
