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.
"The objective of this session is not to conduct a show trial. We want to learn some lessons." What happens when something goes wrong? Who holds us accountable? On 15 October 2015, as part of an inquiry into 'The collapse of Kids Company', Camila Batmanghelidjh and Alan Yentob gave evidence to The Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee. Hadley Fraser, Josie Rourke and composer Tom Deering have transformed that evidence session into a new musical. This production has not been authorised by any participant or Parliament. We present it to you - the public - to consider how civic life in the UK is really governed. It is based on the Parliamentary transcript of the oral evidence session on 15 October 2015 and the words spoken by those participating in the Inquiry. Music and Lyrics - from the transcript of the evidence session by Hadley Fraser and Josie RourkePerformers Sandra Marvin (Camila Batmanghelidjh), Omar Ebrahim (Yentob), Alexander Hanson, Rosemary Ashe, Robert Hands, Liz Robertson, Anthony O'Donnell, David Albury, Joanna Kirkland.
