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.

Playhouse Creatures archiveThe sorry lives of women who become actresses after the 1669 Royal decree allowing them to perform on stage. A rollicking bawdy story, full of rude hilarity, earthy comedy and heartbreak, proving that there is 'No Business Like Show Business'. The play was expanded for the 1997 Peter Hall Company production. Contains strong language

Author April de Angelis.
