Free Grapes at The Scoop

First Published 17 April 2008, Last Updated 21 April 2008

The Scoop at More London once again brings free theatre to London this summer with productions of John Steinbeck's The Grapes Of Wrath and Disney's The Jungle Book KIDS. This is the fifth year in which the London Bridge venue, an open air amphitheatre, has presented a summer season of live performance for the capital's theatregoers to enjoy at absolutely no cost. The season runs between 2 August and 9 September.

Steinbeck's Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning tale of a family that leaves its Oklahoma home behind in search of hope and prosperity in California is adapted for the stage by Tim Baker. The production is directed by Phil Willmott, with musical direction by Joe Fredericks, lighting by Hansjorg Schmidt and costume design by Annalise Harvey.

The same creative team is behind The Scoop's other production, Disney's The Jungle Book KIDS. National Theatre puppeteer Toby Olie joins them to bring to life the jungle world of Mowgli, Baloo, Bagheera and Shere Khan. The production is based on the 1967 animated film and features favourite songs including Bare Necessities and I Wan'na Be Like You.

The season is a collaboration between The Steam Industry and the National Youth Theatre, which supplies eight of the company's 16 actor musicians.

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.

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.
