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.
