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 ;-)
T01515197253 On a rainy night in a town in the north of England, the patter man’s understudy in the famous D’Oyly Carte Opera Company is given a day’s notice that he is ‘on’. A sleepless night ensues and, in the dingy bedroom of his theatrical digs, he tries to rehearse his role - helped, but more often hindered, by one of the other residents of the house - an itinerant variety performer. This musical comedy contains most of the G&S patter songs within a play which is both hilarious and moving, and always engrossing.
