Tuesday 17 March 2020. One of the last theatre performances -for the foreseeable future - in the theatre capital of the world took place at London's Old Red Lion Theatre. A historic, sobering moment, one of many during the global coronavirus crisis.
The Old Red Lion Theatre launches a 'box-set theatre' offering: a unique three-play production that teams the first revival of multi-award-winning Simon Stephens' Nuclear War with two brand-new one-acters by emerging writers. Unmissable post-show Q&A with Stephens and other creatives.
