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.

What is currently on at New Wolsey Theatre (V81)

A Family Affair

In a mixture of farce and fury, a nouveau riche merchant with a superbly vulgar wife and daughter evades his creditors by fraudulently declaring himself bankrupt and temporarily transferring his estate to his loyal underling. But the assistant, who has learnt well from his master's example, has other plans for the money and his future, one of which includes the merchant's supremely spoilt and incorrigible daughter. A sharp, irreverent and robust comic satire, in which everyone is corrupt, including a lawyer, a matchmaker and a couple of peasant servants and where in the end, the swindlers also get swindled.
