Posted: 1st April 2009

Originally starting a limited London run this time last year at the Finborough theatre, 'Plague Over England' transferred to the Duchess Theatre this February.

The play, by former Evening Standard theatre critic Nicholas de Jongh (who quit his job just last week to focus on theatre work) tells the tale of the 1953 arrest of Sir John Gielgud in a public toilet in Chelsea, exploring the homophobic views of the public at the time.

The play stars David Burt, Simon Dutton, Michael Feast, Celia Imrie, Hugh Ross, John Warnaby, Michael Brown, Steven Hansell, Sam Heughan and Hugh Ross, directed by Tamara Harvey.

Originally booking until 16th May, the play will now finish it's West End run on Saturday 2nd May. Tickets, starting at £26 + booking are available now.
