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).

Postcards from God

Postcards from God is a vibrant and enchanting musical portrait of renowned 'art nun' Sister Wendy Beckett. With her homespun philosophy that art is meant for everyone, Sister Wendy became a household name in the nineties with her televised tours of the UK, Europe and America. But as the reluctant pop icon swapped her humble mobile home for the caravan of fame, her simple life would never be the same again. Featuring gospel, pop. rock 'n' roll and rap, Postcards from God's bold new score is composed in styles as various as the artworks, depicted in the show. A cast of all-singing, all-dancing nuns bring this poignant parable about the world's only 'nun critic superstar' to life in vivid colour.
