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


“Oh Selene …

Men and their towers

own the Earth

but borrow the sky.

Their very existence

a courtesy

of you.”


Two blocks west there are hipsters wearing man-buns and babies.


And two blocks east there are dog fights and drug busts.


This is the line. This is the cusp. It's urban America.


The Werewolf of Washington Heights is a New York City-based tale, taking place in the not-so-distant future.


In turns a family drama, a political statement and a surrealistic movement piece exploring the story of the Wild Woman archetype, 'Wolf' tells of a teenager gone missing and a family gone mad.


Background, advisory warnings


Age suitability: Not available


Following its off-Broadway premiere, Slackline Productions brings The Werewolf of Washington Heights to London for its international debut. 'Wolf' explores the universal themes of war, immigration, deportation, racism, misogyny, terrorism, civil rights, and civil disobedience that we, as an international audience, can't help but relate to... and find frighteningly familiar.
