The show below is due to open after that date so (on current information) it is likely to go ahead as scheduled.

It is London in 1936.
Fascism is sweeping across Europe, and Oswald Mosley's British Union of Fascists is threatening to march through the Jewish East End.
Shylock (Tracy-Ann Oberman - Eastenders, Doctor Who, Friday Night Dinner) is a survivor of anti-Semitic pogroms in Russia.
A widow, she runs a small business from her dark and cramped terraced house in Cable Street, hoping to give daughter Jessica a better future.
When aristocratic Antonio desperately needs a loan, he makes a dangerous bargain with this woman he has spat on in the street.
Will Shylock, bitter from a life plagued by racism and abuse, take her revenge?
A vivid evocation of our history, and a warning for our times.
This production is a collaboration between five leading theatres as a creative response to antisemitism in Britain.
