The Theatre Royal Bath has today confirmed that COPENHAGEN, the second production in its successful Welcome Back Season will be postponed, following the Government’s weekend announcement regarding an impending second national lockdown.
Michael Frayn’s multi award-winning play starring Haydn Gwynne, Malcolm Sinclair and Philip Arditti, was scheduled to open on Wednesday evening (4 November), just hours before the country is now widely expected to return to national lockdown measures targeted at combatting the rising numbers of COVID-19 cases.
Plans are underway to reschedule the performances, and as soon as these are confirmed, the Theatre Royal will contact ticketholders. Existing tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled dates, and credit notes, exchanges and refunds will be available should ticketholders be unable to attend the new dates.
COPENHAGEN is the second of three plays in the Theatre Royal Bath’s highly acclaimed Welcome Back Season, which began last month with Harold Pinter’s BETRAYAL. The Theatre’s COVID secure measures and socially distanced auditorium had received much praise from audience, critics and staff alike, generating many positive comments – “Without a doubt, this was safer than any train I’ve used in these times”… “Thank you all for the lovely experience. It was so wonderful to be back in the theatre again and we enjoyed the play immensely”… “Coming to the socially distanced theatre was easy and the experience fully satisfying. Just wonderful to be back”.
COPENHAGEN was originally scheduled to run from Wednesday 4 – Saturday 21 November.
