CANCELLED: Notes from the Field

Anna Deavere Smith

Notes from the Field has unfortunately been cancelled. 

Unfortunately, all performances of Anna Deveare Smith’s Notes from the Field have been cancelled at this year’s International Festival.

The production has been cancelled due to a scheduling conflict for Ms Smith. Because of the nature of the show, it is not possible to re-cast the role.

Ms Smith gave the following statement about the cancellation: ‘I am deeply honoured by the invitation to perform my work at the International Festival this year, and regret that due to immovable, conflicting professional obligations I will not be able to make this appearance and share in this wellspring of imagination. It is my sincere hope that in coming seasons I can’.

All customers who booked tickets for Notes from the Field have been contacted directly by the International Festival and will be refunded in full.
