Following a season of theatre on a jetty, the Turbine Theatre will reopen its doors later this year. The off-West End theatre will open with Cinderella: The Socially Distanced Ball, written by Jodie Prenger and Neil Hurst.

Adapting the well-known fairytale for an adult audience, Jodie Prenger and Neil Hurst's new work will premiere at the Turbine Theatre. Lizzy Connolly directs, with performances from 5 to 23 December.

Rufus Hound will star in the show, previously appearing in Everybody's Talking About Jamie as Hugo/Loco Channelle. The cast is completed by Oscar Conlon-Morrey, Debbie Kurup, Scott Paige, Sean Parkins and Daisy Wood Davis.

Following this summer's performances, Hair at the Turbine Theatre was to transfer to the London Palladium in November. Performances at the Palladium have now been postponed.

The Turbine Theatre opened in Battersea in August 2019, championing new theatre and British premieres.

Cinderella: The Socially-Distanced Ball is at the Turbine Theatre from 5 to 23 December.
