We regret to announce that a member of the cast of Utopia has been taken unwell. It is very much an ensemble piece and, therefore, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the remaining shows.

We apologise to any members of our audience who had either booked or were planning to attend the show.

If you have already purchased a ticket, please do contact the box office on 020 7478 0100 and we shall exchange your tickets for another show, provide a credit note or a refund as you wish.

What is utopia? Is it found in the physical realm, in the love of another person or even within a feeling? Leading contemporary writers including Dylan Moran & Simon Stephens offer us their visions of a perfect world. From spaceships and retirement homes, to political rallies and facebook, no stone has been left unturned in our quest for paradise.

An exciting collaborative project between Soho Theatre and Live Theatre, directed by Artistic Directors Steve Marmion and Max Roberts. Come and experience a lively, daring and dazzling portrait of what utopia is and could be.

Starring Tobi Bakare, Laura Elphinstone, Rufus Hound, Pamela Miles, Sophia Myles and David Whitaker.

Writers include:
Michael Chaplin, Zoe Cooper, Thomas Eccleshare, Alistair McDowall, Dylan Moran, Janice Okoh, Simon Stephens and Chi Onwurah MP. Including material from the works of Thomas More, William Shakespeare, Adolf Hitler and many more.
