CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.

About the Show/Event

Information for Paradise at Olivier (National Theatre), West End (Play). In a cave on a desolate island lives Philoctetes: once a wartime hero, now a wounded outcast. Stranded for ten years, he sees a chance of escape when a young solider appears with tales of Philoctetes' past glories. But with his hope comes suspicion and, as an old enemy emerges, he is faced with an even greater temptation: revenge.
