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.

Mince? archiveLife, love and luxuriously lush lounge sounds. Donald Johnston writes jingle for TV ads, his most famous being the McKinnon's Tinned Mince campaign. He is handsome talented, successful, but losing the plot. The music with which he make his living is turning against him. His easy-listening imagination is taking control and he finds himself slipping into a fantasy world where all the mistakes of his life are played out in song. Jaunted by his past, tormented by his future, and finding it impossible to live in the present, ex-girlfriends, dead relatives and an assortment of alter-egoes all vie for attention in the form of a swinging, 'music for pleasure' ensemble, in his head. Dr Jessica Craig a new age, cyber-therapist, with the aid of the latest computer technology, sifts through these mad musical memories to try to lay them to rest. Will this radical process allow Donald to come to terms with his losses, so he can enjoy life and love again? And at what cost? Join her on this jingly journey inside the mind of Donald Johnston...a man whose head is full of Mince, in more ways than one.

Author Forbes Masson.
