Here is a statement from Roy Alexander Weise, Bryony Shanahan and Steve Freeman:
It is with real sadness that we are cancelling the press night of our new show ROCKETS AND BLUE LIGHTS. Following the Governments statement regarding COVID19 the health and well-being of our staff, acting companies and audiences are paramount.
We would like to take a moment to celebrate the outstanding achievement over the last 5 weeks of the Rockets company. Under the direction of Miranda Cromwell, Winsome Pinnock’s exceptional, beautiful and epic play was brought to life on our stage. We thank them for all of their hard work, their dedication and their passion for this very important project. It has been an honour.
We are very sorry for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause. We will continue to post further updates regarding the Royal Exchange Theatre, and we send love and strength to all our communities at this difficult time.
