The Court Theatre is putting on two additional matinee performances of Winding Up in a bid to accommodate theatre-goers under level 2.

The play, featuring well-known actors Mark Hadlow and Darien Takle, was close to being sold out when the alert levels changed on Sunday.

The Court Theatre team has been working to rearrange bookings to adhere to the gathering limit and social distancing.

"It’s been all hands on deck as we transformed our building once again into two zones that can safely cater for up to 100 people each," Court Theatre chief executive Barbara George said.

"Winding Up has proved popular, which is great, but unfortunately to operate safely under level 2 does mean reduced capacity in our theatre."

George said the team is contacting everyone with bookings affected by the restrictions.

"It’s disappointing, but even with two extra shows some may still miss out, but we will be making it as easy as we can to rebook and we will work with those who miss out to ensure they are well looked after."emic."

  • The extra matinee performances will be on Wednesday, March 10, and Saturday, March 13.
