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 and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021.


Mister Heracles archiveA living legend returns home after years away. He finds his family under threat of execution and his country in despair. It's not quite the welcome home he'd expected. The country has been waiting for the return of a conquering hero, but Heracles is just a man - a master of violence, but also a slave to it. Shocking and strange, tearing from triumph to horror, Mister Heracles was commissioned by the Playhouse from Yorkshire-born poet, Simon Armitage.

Author Simon Armitage.
