We very much regret that in the current circumstances we have to postpone this production. We shall continue rehearsals when it is safe to do so, and reschedule the tour performances – probably in May/ June 2021.
Those who have already booked tickets will receive refunds.

We continue planning for our next major production, and look forward to announcing our plans for season 2020 – 2021 here in due course
