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.

Synopsis


In a sinister 1950s Britain, the country is under the rule of the violent and oppressive Motherland.


Dark government forces are at work.


Spies and surveillance are everywhere, and the truth is difficult to discern.


Meet our hero, Standish Treadwell.


He is fifteen, he lives with his grandpa, and although his teachers are part of the regime, together he and grandpa are safe.


But then one day, Standish's best friend disappears.


And suddenly all their lives are in terrible danger.


Can Standish be the hero who will save them all?


Live drawing, cameras and projection bring Sally Gardner's dazzlingly original, award-winning novel to life, in this story about protecting the ones you love and having the courage to stand up for what you believe.
