Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak


From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).


Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.


However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.


The show below is due to open after the reopening date given above so it is possible it will go ahead, but you are advised to check the booking link to confirm.



Aaron and Julia

17 to 22 Nov 2020

The Space

Set in a diverse and multicultural community in late-Roman Britain, this modern comedy takes a tongue-in-cheek look at how opportunists use emotion to influence and manipulate their way to their own ends, regardless of the consequences.

Synopsis


Caerleon, a small harbour town in the south of Wales, feels very far indeed from the epicentre of the vast, sprawling Roman Empire.


The local 'bishop', Adelfius, has almost given up on his mission to convert the disinterested locals, and spends more time trying to impress the famed courtesan Afra than he does spreading the good news.


However, the recent appearance of the devout Jewish Christian Aaron, and the impending arrival of the young, impressionable Roman noble, Julia, might just be the miracle Adelfius needs to put Christianity (and more importantly, himself) on this part of the map.


Set in a diverse and multicultural community in late-Roman Britain, this modern comedy takes a tongue-in-cheek look at how opportunists use emotion to influence and manipulate their way to their own ends, regardless of the consequences.


Identity politics satire in Roman Britain; historically accurate but with 2020 overtones.
