What promised to be a fantastic theatrical year in Bristol quickly went to pot, after coronavirus closed down theatres nationwide in March 2020. There were some heroic efforts by theatre both regionally and in London’s West End, to open up before the end of the year. But theatre makers also embraced the opportunity that digital streaming new productions could offer.
Our favourite show of 2020 was Labels by Joe Sellman-Leava, which took place at The Wardrobe Theatre in Bristol back in January 2020.
