Book your seats now though before they sell out…

Just like that, it’s the end of March and as we approach the second quarter of the year there’s plenty of amazing things to add to your to-do list.

For those of you who love the theatre, there’s plenty of drama taking place next month that you don’t want to miss. But make sure you book your seats now before they get sold out.

Here are three performances that you need to catch in April 



When: April 1 to 3

The complexity of human relationships is the focus in Harold Pinter’s Betrayal playing at The Junction theatre in Alserkal in April. This meticulously staged production looks very carefully and very calculatingly at the odd relationships that can exist between husbands, wives, and lifelong friends. Expect plenty of drama, love and deceit when this officially licensed Broadway show hits the stage.

Tickets for Friday are already sold out, but there are a few remaining seats on April 1 and 3. Get your tickets here.

 Holmes and Watson

 Holmes and Watson

When: April 7 to 10

The troupe behind some of the finest plays in the UAE over the past 10 years such as 12 Angry Men, Almost, Maine, And Then There Were None, Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and more are now taking on Jeffrey Hatcher’s Holmes and Watson this April. When the great detective, Sherlock Holmes’ body goes missing after going over the deadly falls at Reichenbach three years ago, a number of frauds, fakes and charlatans have come forward to lay claim to his identity, and it falls to Dr Watson to disprove them and find the real Sherlock Holmes.
