UKTW - 25 years online
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.

12.10.15 archive"I expected my sentence and I believe it was just. Standing as I do in view of God and Eternity, I realise that patriotism is not enough, I must have no hatred or bitterness towards anyone." These were the words of Edith Louisa Cavell, on 11 October 1915, the day before she was shot by firing squad in Belgium for the protection, concealment and smuggling away of allied soldiers. The story of Edith Cavell, a caring and compassionate nurse working in occupied Belgium during the "war to end all wars" is revealed and recounted by a war hardened, weary and cynical 21st century female war correspondent. One hundred years after the outbreak of the First World War what have we really learnt? Could Edith Cavell's death been avoided? Was she used as a propaganda tool by the British Government - a perfect martyr to polarise world opinion against the Germans? And in the 21st Century theatre of war, are aid workers, journalists, and civilians murdered and martyred as Cavell was, in the hope that a jaded world will listen?
Performers Mary Rose (Edith Cavell).
Author Clive Holland. Company Proteus Theatre. Director Mary Swan. Design Sam Pine.
