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.
My Dearest Girls
Francesca Millican-Slater creates a piece based on the real letters sent between a group of six Shropshire women between 1917-1920. Against a background of war the women tell each other stories of their everyday life; as farmers, office workers, factory hands, nurses and teachers. There is gossip and a hint of scandal, reprimands and reprisals, tales of dancing for royalty, fianc?s on the frontline and how to feed 100 chickens while on rations. By combining character, music hall-influenced song and lyrical storytelling, Francesca invites the audience to meet, hear and imagine themselves within the lives and friendships of these women.
