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


There’s an elephant in the room.


Or rather, a corpse in the trunk.


Ralf and Sarah are hosting a dinner party.


To spice things up they convince their guests there’s a dead body in their trunk.


The ultimate ice-breaker.


Background, advisory warnings


Age suitability: Not available


Blink. Theatre follow their acclaimed inaugural play: The Collector (“A perfectly depraved horror” - Grumpy Gay Critic, “Exquisitely Vulnerable” - The Public Reviews) with this innovative run of Mr Kolpert (David Gieselmann, translation by David Tushingham).


An ethically complex farce, Ralf and Sarah’s all too real prank leads us down a dark and twisted path to challenge the condition of the human imagination and rediscover our empathy. And that’s just for starters …


With writing reminiscent of Hitchcock, Tarantino and Albee, Mr Kolpert is an anarchic black comedy sizzling with surprises.


This is not about Brexit or Merkelisation, but rather just how far we would go to feel real in a disintegrating world.
