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.


Cox & Box 1866: Cox is an apprentice hatter who works by day and Box is a printer who works by night. The two unknowingly share the same rented room, hoodwinked by their thrifty landlady Mrs Bouncer. Sir Arthur Sullivan's one act comic opera is reinvented with a brand new second act: Mrs Bouncer's Legacy 2016: A recently elected government has repatriated all migrant workers. Twin sisters, Urszula and Krystyna are secretly sharing a room - the very same one - in a run-down B&B where their landlord is a member of the UZIP party. A cross-dressed Victorian romp gives way to a thoroughly modern take on Gilbert & Sullivan inspired political satire, wrapped up with a heart-warming happy ending. You simply won't be able to stop yourself singing Fetch a Pan or Yorkshire is So Beautiful.

Music Arthur Sullivan. Lyrics F.C. Burnand. Author John Madison Morton. Adapted by Chris Monks. Adapted by Richard Atkinson.
