Fiennes’s 2,000 Feet extends

First Published 1 July 2008, Last Updated 1 July 2008

2,000 Feet Away, the debut drama by Anthony Weigh, which stars Joseph Fiennes, Ian Hart and Phyllis Logan, has extended its run at the Bush until 19 July.

The extra week of performances has been added due to popular demand, and extra tickets have been made available for all forthcoming performances.

Weigh’s drama, which opened at the Shepherd’s Bush venue on 16 June, stars Fiennes as the Deputy of a small Iowan community, tasked with enforcing a new law banning sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of anywhere children may gather. The effects of the new statute are made clear when he is forced to evict his neighbours’ son (Hart).

The production, directed by the Bush’s Artistic Director Josie Rourke, also stars Kirsty Bushell, Roger Sloman, Kevin Trainor, Joe Ashman, Oliver Coopersmith, Miranda Princi and Charlotte Beaumont.

2,000 Feet Away marked Fiennes’s first return to the London stage since 2005’s Epitaph For George Dillon, which ran at the Comedy. The Hollywood star has appeared in films including Elizabeth, Shakespeare In Love and Stealing Beauty. Co-star Hart is also best known for his screen work, which includes Finding Neverland, Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone, Longitude and The Virgin Queen.

2,000 Feet Away is followed at the Bush by 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover, a series of short plays inspired by tales of breaking up submitted by the Bush’s audiences. Playwrights Lucy Chillery, Ben Ellis, Stacey Gregg, Lucy Kirkwood and Ben Schiffer have transformed the tales into the stage piece, which is performed by a cast led by Ralf Little.

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.

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.

Theatres are currently closed until 3 August. Some shows have cancelled or rescheduled performances beyond this date, please check with individual shows for details.
