Catch Victoria Hamilton & Daisy Edgar-Jones in Mike Bartlett’s Albion on BBC Four this month

Following two sold-out runs at the Almeida Theatre, Mike Bartlett’s (Doctor Foster) hit production Albion will be available to watch on BBC Four later this month, as part of BBC’s Culture In Quarantine series.

The play is set in a garden (known as Albion) attached to an English country house. The house has been bought by successful businesswoman Audrey Walters, who intends to restore the garden, now in ruins, to its former glory, and to use it to memorialise the son she recently lost in a foreign war.

Richly comic and punctuated by the cultural splits that have characterised Britain over the last years, the play features an award-winning performance from Victoria Hamilton (The Crown). She is joined by Nigel Betts, Edyta Budnik, Wil Coban, Angel Coulby, Daisy Edgar-Jones, Dónal Finn, Geoffrey Freshwater, Victoria Hamilton, Margot Leicester, Nicholas Rowe and Helen Schlesinger.

Directed by Rupert Goold, this tragicomic drama about national identity, family, mourning and the disappointment of personal dreams will be available to watch BBC Four at 10.10pm on 16 August. You can also watch it live and on-demand on BBC iplayer. Click here to find out more!

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
