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.


Wipers archiveOctober 1914, Ypres, Belgium. The British forces, bolstered by huge numbers of volunteer soldiers from across the Empire have suffered huge casualties in one of the first bloody battles of The Great War. As a sole survivor on the battlefield holds off the advancing enemy troops, a group of South Asian and British soldiers seek refuge in an abandoned barn. Over the course of a single night, this group of men must confront their fears and find a way to come together if they are to survive. Wipers is inspired by the real life story of Khudadad Khan, the first South Asian soldier to be awarded a Victoria Cross for his extraordinary bravery at the First Battle of Ypres - a site that went on to be known as Wipers by the soldiers who fought there. This explosive new play by acclaimed playwright Ishy Din and directed by Suba Das, honours the contribution of the million South Asian soldiers who fought alongside their British brothers during the First World War.
Performers Jassa Ahluwalia (Thomas), Waleed Akhtar (Ayub), Sartaj Garewal (A.D.), Simon Rivers (Sadiq).
