After lots of discussions, it is with heavy hearts that we have to announce that Play In A Week “Escape: The Party!” is being postponed until sumer 2021.
The Workshop Day on 2nd May has been cancelled, and we will not be in theatre this July.
We are very disappointed to have to do this, but given the current situation and the evolving guidelines from Government about Coronavirus, we believe it is the right decision. We have to put everyone’s health and wellbeing first, and bringing 100 people together for our special week (even though July seems a long way away) is a risk that we do not believe it is right to take.
The script for “Escape: The Party!” will go safely onto the shelf, fundraising efforts will continue, and we will look forward to regrouping as a Company to have a fun-packed week bringing it to life in summer 2021.
If you have already registered and paid your money, electronic payments will be refunded in the next few days. The cheques have received from some people have not been cashed and will now be securely shredded.
We will be in touch later in the year, and hope to be able to hold a gathering of some kind in the autumn so that we can all meet up and see each other. Hopefully we will then be able to do some planning together to make 2021 a really fantastic 22nd Play In A Week event.
In the meantime we wish you all well. Stay safe, and thank you for your understanding and continued support.
