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.

USER (07Jul04): that's good
Arts Archive (28Jun04): An excellent production with Russ Abbot giving a wonderful performance as Bottom, and the transformation of his head was great. Great performances from Christopher Godwin, Oliver Beamish, Mark Hilton, and Keith Dunphy all showing stage presence.
