The Browning Version – CANCELLATION

Sadly we have received information from the theatre that the production of The Browning Version which was due to take place at the Riverside Studios in August 2021 has had to be cancelled.  The impact of cast members getting infected by Covid-19 or being asked to isolate as a result of exposure to the virus has been such that the production is no longer viable or able to be staged successfully.
