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 ;-)

A Life of Galileo

A Life of GalileoT02027321597
Galileo's astonishing proof that the earth moves around the sun shatters a belief held sacred for two thousand years. Considered an enemy of humanity, he's threatened with torture and faced with a terrible choice: integrity versus intellectual sell-out.
Author Bertolt Brecht
