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.

Refugee Boy

Alem and his father are in a B&B in Datchet. Alem has lived in Ethiopia and Eritrea but this is his best holiday ever. But in the morning Alem's father is gone, a note explains that his parents didn't want him to risk his life in the war at home. So they have left him in the UK. A refugee. From care home, to foster home, from school to court, Alem's journey makes him reach inside himself to find courage to go on and strength to speak out.
