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.



Nine Lives

22 to 31 Oct 2020

The Bridge Theatre

See over here it's not like over there. Here there are neon lights. Here there are queens. Here there are rainbow flags draw high. One man and a suitcase filled with the past, uncertainty, high heels, brokenness, African dancing shells and hope.

Synopsis


See over here it's not like over there.


Here there are neon lights.


Here there are queens. Here there are rainbow flags draw high.


One man and a suitcase filled with the past, uncertainty, high heels, brokenness, African dancing shells and hope.


Ishmael has been outed, along with his lover, David.


He has sought sanctuary in the UK, but is this evidence enough?


As Ishmael waits to hear his fate, he encounters new friends - and enemies, all the while looking for a place to call home again.


Zodwa Nyoni threads together humour and humanity to tell the real personal story behind asylum headlines.
