Following the latest advice from the government, we have decided to cancel our public productions and events.
We want our staff, students and visitors to stay well and healthy. Following advice that everyone avoids large social gatherings we have decided that we have to play our part in stopping the spread of the virus by cancelling our public productions.
Over the coming weeks we may find that many of our students are no longer employed in the temporary bar, restaurant and shop jobs that they have. It would make a huge difference to our students if you would consider donating your ticket price to our student hardship fund to support the Central community during this very difficult time. If you have booked a ticket you will be contacted by a member of our box office team by email.

Music by Arun Ghosh
Performed by MA Acting Contemporary
We are constantly bombarded with information on all fronts, often purporting to reveal important knowledge, and yet… and yet, we yearn for simple connection, for human contact, for love. 16 actors play over 100 characters in more than 50 dizzyingly fast paced scenes in this thematic study of how humans choose to live or, perhaps more accurately, find themselves living. The creative team behind Bones, The Burial At Thebes, and Beweep/Outcast join forces with musician and composer Arun Ghosh and MA Acting Contemporary to bring Churchill’s finely crafted work to the stage. A single play or fifty-seven individual vignettes? You decide.
‘It takes the light two point eight million years to get here.
So we’re looking at two point eight million years ago.
It might not be there. It could have died by now.
So who’s going to see that?’
By special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd a Concord Theatricals Company.
