CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
Other spaces: Weston Theatre, River Theatre, John Lyon Room, The Foyer, Foyle Studio
T01456219771 Set on a remote island in Finland, six year-old Sophia and her grandmother while away the summer months together, and gradually a fierce yet understated love emerges between the two ? one that encompasses not just their relationship but the island itself, with its mossy rocks, windswept firs and unpredictable seas. This year is the centenary of the birth of Tove Jansson, much-loved creator of the Moomins, and this unique story captures much of the writer's own experience. Anyone who has ever known a grandparent or a grandchild will recognise the truths in this extraordinary description of life and love and the struggle we all face, whatever our age, to understand them. This is a perfect summer show for grandchildren, grandparents and everyone in between.
