UKTW - 25 years online
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.


A memorable distillation of the Faust legend. A soldier returning home meets the Devil and swaps his violin (his soul) for a book that allegedly holds the key to wealth and success. This new Arabic/English translation of The Soldier's Tale will premiere in Baghdad this autumn prior to its West End opening, and in order to reach as wide an audience as possible the company will tour to Paris, Berlin and New York.
