Liverpool Royal Court has announced an update on its next two shows – with one postponed and the second run cancelled.
Audience favourite, disco musical Mam! I’m ‘Ere, was due to return to the Roe Street stage this summer.
But now it is being scheduled for 12 months’ time, running from June 25 to July 24 2021 instead.
Sadly however, there is no room in the 2021 schedules for Girls Don’t Play Guitars. It means playwright Ian Salmon’s show, which was a smash hit when it was premiered last year, will now be cancelled.
If you are a Mam! I’m Ere ticketholder you will receive an email with the new date of your performance.
Alternatively, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org to change your tickets for another date in the new run or exchange them for a voucher or a refund.
Ticketholders for performances of Girls Don’t Play Guitars will receive a full refund and that will be processed by the box office over the next few days.

The next scheduled show is now Pete Price Is Dead in October. That was postponed after its initial run in March was interrupted by the pandemic lockdown.
Meanwhile tickets for the Royal Court’s Christmas show will go on sale on sale once lockdown is over and all staff are back in the building.
Royal Court executive producer Kevin Fearon said: “All the customers we’ve spoken to over the last few weeks have been brilliant, so we’d like to thank them for their understanding and support.
“The government advice about reopening theatres is still quite vague but we're anticipating social distancing rules to last for the next few months at least.
“We want to open up as soon as we can but the most important thing is the good health of everyone, both staff and audiences, so we'll wait as long as we need to until that is secured.”
