News: September theatre news gathers apace

Lockdown may have returned but theatres are boldly looking ahead – the David Tennant-starring Good and Six the Musical are moving theatres, Haydn Gwynne is back and The Last Five Years extends at the Southwark Playhouse

CP Taylor’s Good, starring David Tennant, Fenella Woolgar and Elliot Levey and directed by Dominic Cooke, which was due to open this October, has announced new dates for 2021 and a new run at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

Produced by Fictionhouse and Playful Productions, Good was originally scheduled to begin performances at the Playhouse Theatre on Tuesday 6th October. Due to the current global situation, the production was postponed and will now preview at the Harold Pinter Theatre from Wednesday 21st April  to Saturday 17st July 2021.

Current ticket holders will be given priority for the new dates and do not need to do anything. The point of purchase will be in touch with ticket holders to reschedule or refund their booking. Extra tickets for the new dates for Good at The Harold Pinter Theatre go on sale at 10am, Monday 12 October 2020.

SIX by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss will resume performances in a West End theatre when the show temporarily moves from its home at the Arts Theatre to the Lyric on Shaftesbury Avenue for a limited 11-week run beginning on Saturday November 14 through to January 31, 2021

Jarnéia Richard-Noel, Courtney Bowman, Natalie Paris, Alexia McIntosh, Sophie Isaacs, Danielle Steers, Zara Macintosh, Cherelle Jay, Hana Stewart and Collette Guitart are expected to return to the West End cast and will perform 9 shows a week at the Lyric Theatre.

Additionally, following their successful run in previous festive seasons, the UK Touring Cast of Athena Collins, Jennifer Caldwell, Jodie Steele, Lauren Byrne, Lauren Drew, Shekinah McFarlane, Maddison Bulleyment, Harriet Watson and Cassandra Lee will resume performances in the Lyric Theatre at the Lowry in Salford from Friday November 27, 2020 for a 6-week Christmas season.

Sotto Voce is delighted to announce a brand new, Covid restriction-adhering, outdoor world premiere of Renaissance, a new comedy starring BAFTA and Olivier nominated Haydn Gwynne (Billy Elliot (West End and Broadway) Drop the Dead Donkey, Camilla in C4s The Windsors) and James Corrigan (Edmund in King Lear (West End), Mark Antony in Julius Caesar (RSC).

Join Cesare Borgia, Niccolò Machiavelli and Leonardo da Vinci… as the Prince becomes an Arist, the Politician becomes a Prince, and the Artist goes into politics!

The play is initially scheduled to run from the 17th – 20th September, but has plans to extend beyond the end of the month, if weather and current Covid restrictions permit.

With over two thirds of tickets sold for the originally announced dates, audiences now have the chance to buy a new batch of tickets for The Last Five Years as new performance dates are added to accommodate demand for booking. The show will be extending for a further two weeks, through to 14 November 2020.

As previously announced, Molly Lynch and Oli Higginson will return to their roles of Cathy and Jamie. They will be in the same ‘support bubble’ which means that the show will not operate under social distancing. We are also thrilled to announce today that two understudy performers will be joining the show: Josh Barnett (Jamie) and Lydia White (Cathy).
