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 ;-)

"I saw a woman screaming slightly louder than the rest. She lifted her child into the air, trying to pass it to a group of yellow crusaders. It was like Vietnam without the napalm" 10th February 2005. At the stroke of midnight the British public punch, kick, strangle and eventually stab their way to £45 sofas and £35 bed frames at the opening of their favourite Swedish furniture store. Riot is an epic tale of violence, greed, and cheap sofas, The Wardrobe Ensemble ask what pushes civilised people to RIOT out of want; not of need. With frenetic, eclectic force The Wardrobe Ensemble build a flat-pack universe that is as funny as it is scary, and as bizarre as it is familiar. A company of 11 tear up the instructions and disregard the diagrams to construct a musical tragedy of a thoroughly modern kind.
