On Wednesday 27 November at Trafalgar Studios, The Game of Thrones and Endeavour actor Roger Allam will lead a host of star names in a tribute show to celebrate one of the greatest playwrights of our generation – Peter Nichols: A Celebration.

Joined by an incredible line-up of actors from stage and screen, including Nigel Lindsay (Victoria), Layo-Christina Akinlude (The End Of The F***ing World), Laurence Belcher (X-Men: First Class) and James Harkness (Star Wars – Rogue One),  Roger Allam will – under the direction of Peter Nichols’ grandson George Nichols – perform a series of extracts from Peter Nichols’ much loved television and stage plays, as well as passages from his personal diaries and rare unproduced plays, kindly provided by The British Library.

We caught a look at Teenage Dick, Mike Lew’s darkly comic take on Shakespeare’s Richard III, directed by Donmar Artistic Director Michael Longhurst.

Showing at the Donmar Warehouse, the play tells the story of Richard – the class loser – who lusts for power at Roseland High. After years of torment due to his hemiplegia, Richard plots to become president of his senior class. But like all teenagers, and all despots, he is faced with the hardest question of all: is it better to be loved, or feared?

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. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

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.
