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 will not currently be playing and is scheduled to close by 15 August 2020 (when theatres can reopen for indoor performances).


Original performance dates are given below and reflect any changes we know about.

Show details

Synopsis


From the director of Misty, Autoreverse is the true story of one family's determination to find a place to call home.


Florencia has an old box full of cassette tapes from her family home in Chile.


As she starts listening to them in her room in London, she travels back in time and space, to when her family fled Argentina's dictatorship and started recording audio letters to stay in touch with their loved ones.


Spanning four decades, Florencia Cordeu and director Omar Elerian (Misty, Going Through, NASSIM, One Cold Dark Night, Islands) create a moving and uplifting audio-visual experience that asks what it means to remember: as an individual, as a family, and as a country.
