CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020, work is underway to re-open safely. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.


Dancing Bears archiveA comedy of manners, Marxism an misogyny that satirises Old and New Labour, as well as the tabloid press. Undercover journalist Lola Forbes-McKendrick visits former Foreign Secretary Ben Tanner, intent on trapping him into admitting to a treasonable act committed while in office. But on arrival she unexpectedly encounters her ex-lover, Ben's half-brother Peter, from whom she split acrimoniously years earlier, and who never revealed his family connections. Somehow she must charm Peter into preserving her cover, and get her story. She also has to deal with Ben's son-in-law, cynical Home Office minister Jeff, and Ben's friend Clara, a Duke's daughter and hard-line Communist.
