Having rescheduled its dates from October last year to April this year, the production has now removed its upcoming dates.

While new dates for  Dominic Cooke’s production have yet to be announced, it was confirmed that it was still set to star David Tennant as Professor John Halder as well as  Fenella Woolgar and Elliot Levey.

As the world faces its Second World War, John Halder, a decent, intelligent, music-loving German professor, finds himself swept along in a movement that crescendos towards an unthinkable finale. Good is a warning for our times.

C.P Taylor’s play originally premiered at the Donmar Warehouse in 1981. It was revived in 1999 starring Charles Dance and a film version – created in 2008 – featured Viggo Mortensen, Jason Isaacs and Jodie Whittaker.

The creative team for the production includes designs by Vicki Mortimer, lighting by Paule Constable, sound design by Paul Arditti and musical direction by Nigel Lilley.

Those who have booked tickets don’t need to do anything and will be contacted in due course by their point of purchase.
