Angels Of The North transfers to the West End

The world premiere of John Godber’s comedy Angels Of The North is opening at Trafalgar Studios from 14 May, running until 6 June, following runs at Theatre Royal Wakefield and East Riding Theatre.

When taxi firm owner Val suddenly dies, terrible taxi drivers Dennis and Mick are left in the lurch. When her newly graduated, streetwise, tourism guru niece turns up to take over the company, she quickly becomes a thorn in their side. But she might end up being an angel in disguise.

Looking at life in the North in a new era and under a new government, Angels Of The North promises to be a warmly funny follow-up to John’s previous hit, Scary Bikers. Grab your tickets below!

Rehearsal images of the European première Of Paula Vogel’s Indecent

A seminal work of Jewish culture or an act of traitorous libel? Indecent explores the origins of the highly controversial play The God of Vengeance by Sholem Asch. We follow the path of the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it in this deeply moving play accompanied by a small live klezmer band.

Starring Cory English (Curtains – Wyndham’s, Young Frankenstein – Garrick); Beverley Klein (The Beggar’s Opera – Bouffes du Nord, TV’s Call The Midwife); Finbar Lynch (Girl From the North Country – Noel Coward/Gielgud, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom – National Theatre); Molly Osborne (Fiddler On The Roof – Menier and Playhouse); Peter Polycarpou (A Very Expensive Poison – Old Vic, Sweeney Todd – Adelphi); and Alexandra Silber (Kiss Me Kate, Carousel); Joseph Timms (A Christmas Carol, The Taming Of The Shrew – Shakespeare’s Globe).

You can buy tickets to see Indecent (13 March – 9 May) from the Menier Chocolate Factory.

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.
