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 and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021.
A group of actors are performing The Winter's Tale at the Unicorn. But it's not going well. Based on Shakespeare's late comedy, this hilarious new production turns the world of The Winter's Tale on its head. It's a play within a play, in which four performers present Shakespeare's story of Kings and Queens and bears in the forest - a world of petty jealousies and playground rites,in which it's always the servants who draw the short straw. This brilliant play within a play explores the politics of the playground with a humour that will appeal to all ages.
