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.
Based on Roald Dahlâs dark short stories for adults these renowned tales are adapted for stage for the first time by The League of Gentlemenâs Jeremy Dyson, writer of the Lyricâs smashhit Ghost Stories and director Polly Findlay as the twisted imagination and full malevolence of Dahl is revealed. Directed by Polly Findlay, winner of the JMK Trust's young theatre director award in 2007 and recipient of the 2006/7 Bulldog Princeps Bursary at the National Theatre. Findlayâs credits include Caryl Churchillâs Light Shining in Buckinghamshire (Arcola); Eigengrau (Bush); Thyestes (Arcola) and Romeo and Juliet (Battersea Arts Centre). Master of the macabre, Jeremy Dyson, has won numerous awards as the co-writer of the hilariously bleak The League of Gentlemen; including a Perrier Award, Bafta Award for Best Comedy and the Golden Rose of Montreux. The stage show he co-penned, A Local Show for Local People, was nominated for an Olivier Award in 2002. Jeremy Dyson co-wrote and directed the Lyricâs production of Ghost Stories with Andy Nyman, following its phenomenal success the show transferred to the West End.
