PERFORMANCES were cancelled at the RSC in Stratford for the second night running due to flooding.
Theatre-goers were alerted via the RSC’s website that performances of The Box of Delights and The Fair Maid of the West would not be going ahead on Wednesday night (January 3). The flood waters, which have enchroached right up to the theatre on Waterside, also saw the productions cancelled on Tuesday evening (January 2).
The full statement on the theatre company’s website reads: “Due to rising water levels of the River Avon, and a high risk of flooding in and around Stratford, we have had to cancel this evening’s (January 3) performances of The Box of Delights and The Fair Maid of the West.
“We always try to go ahead with a performance as long as it is safe to do so, and cancelling performances is a last resort. We will contact all ticket bookers to discuss their options and we ask that you don’t contact us directly. Thank you for your patience and support, and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
