Safety for audiences will be a number one priority as we look to come together again for shared cultural experiences. We will be taking the precautions in line with the government guidance at the time. This is a socially distanced event. Seats are unreserved and group sizes are currently restricted to a maximum of six people, who must all be from one household/support bubble. When you book your ticket, you’ll receive an email in advance with helpful information before the performance. If you have any questions or queries please contact us on [email protected]
Back in Georgian times we got our news from poetry. Before paper, broadcasts or the internet, ballad sellers would hawk their doggerel on street corners for a penny. Scandalous affairs, grisly crimes, and colourful characters were brought to life in rhyming verse long before the first tabloid was printed.
Now Luke has rewritten the very best of these stories for the modern ear: take a trip through the Drury Lane gin shops with the Boxing Baroness; filch oysters by the dozen with Dando, the celebrated gormandiser; and escape the Bull Ring with Jemmy the Rockman. Expect scandal, excess, and beautiful flawed humanity.
