Hail Cremation! cancellation - National Theatre Wales

Hail Cremation! cancellation

March 17, 2020

In light of the ongoing situation regarding COVID-19/Coronavirus, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel all performances of Hail Cremation!

The health and wellbeing of our cast, crew, staff and audiences is our central focus, and in the light of current public health guidance, we feel it is no longer feasible to go ahead with the run of performances.

We will be contacting everyone who has bought a ticket with options to receive a refund or credit for future NTW performances. Given the difficult circumstances, refunds may take up to 10 days. Please bear with us, and we will be in touch.

We want to take the opportunity to send our love and thanks to our incredible cast, creatives, team and staff for all their hard work and dedication to this wonderful show.

We’re currently reviewing our planned programme over the coming months and we will do everything we can to support our artists, staff, partners and community, many of whom are freelance, during this unprecedented time.

We would like to offer reassurance that all freelancers for Hail Cremation! and other ongoing projects, will have all contracts honoured and paid in full.
