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.
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 looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
I'm sorry but this show really didn't work for me, on any level. I was not drawn into the characters or the story and consequently found that I was not engaged with either. I felt that the script was unsure of what it was trying to tell us and the characters had little depth and were not credibly delivered, in part because the direction seemed to lack motivation but also because the dialogue lacked variation and bite. Coming in on high emotion gives you no place to go when the story gets heavier so we end up with "more of the same". Tightened up and given some light and shade we may feel some of the jeopardy, desolation, grief and fear that such a post-apocalyptic tale should engender, but that is not what I got from the show I saw.
