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.
Closed 8 Feb 2020
Follows the story of Eleanor Hickock, a passionate and argumentative polemical journalist who becomes the Iraq War's chief evangelist.
This hard-hitting production interrogates the power and danger of language, as one journalist's words send a young man to enlist for the frontline.
For Eleanor, conversations are a battleground and words are tools for manipulation.
Her disputatious stance on the 2003 invasion persuades one reader, Mark, to enlist.
When Mark's mother seeks out the journalist who convinced her son to die for his country, sparks fly and violent confrontations ensue.
Eleanor is faced with a family who mourn the loss of a son and a brother and is asked to answer for it.
