The Norwich Theatre Royal has had to cancel both of today's performances of The Absence of War after the lead actor fell ill.

Performances at 2.30pm and 7.30pm have been called off as actor Reece Dinsdale had come up with a chest infection.

John Bultitude, royal communications officer for the theatre, said: 'We are currently in the process of ringing up all the bookers to tell them not to turn up to tonight's showing and to offer them a refund.

'We will have staff on the doors just in case people do show up and we will be sending letters through the post about the refunds as well.'

This was the final day of performances of The Absence of War at the Norwich Theatre Royal, having started on Tuesday.

The play will next next week be held in Watford, before showing in cities such as Bristol, Liverpool and Glasgow.
