CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Katya Kabanova is a woman with a gentle soul and a passionate nature, drowning in a narrow-minded small town society. She is married to Tichon, a weak man entirely under the thumb of his nightmare of a mother, Kabanicha. Katya has caught the eye of the romantic Boris, and when Tichon leaves on a business trip, temptation proves impossible to resist. Katya and Boris embark on a passionate affair, spending every night together. But when her husband returns, a storm breaks in Katya's heart and mind. Overwhelmed by a sense of guilt, she feels compelled to confess her sin.Performers Rebecca de Pont Davies (Kabanicha), Christopher Turner (Tichon), Katie Bray (Varvara), Alexander Sprague (Kudryash), Stephen Richardson (Dikoy).
