Hi, as some of you will know, the mayflower has no big summer show this year, but lots of little ones, BUT i've noticed that right in the middle of August (A prime slot with summer holidays) there is a 10 day gap, does anyone know what will fill this, as i doubt the theatre would want to see it empty for so long in the middle of the busiest times of year?

Surprisingly, a lot of theatres take the hot Summer months to do lot of essential maintenance, work that is either done just after panto or in Summer. This may be the case...or you my get the sudden announcement of new show soon.

**EDIT**
If you look a little closer to the Mayflowers schedule, you'll see a lot more empty empty weeks than you mention!!

I work at the Palace in Manchester and our year is very quiet as well.Not much is touring this year so a lot of the regional theatres are a bit on the anemic side.

Oh yeah and wickedboy is right, the theatres tend to go dark for a bit in the summer (we are closed for most of august).Its time to sort out maintenance issues
