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.

Absent Friends archiveSummer 1974. A well-intentioned tea party descends into chaos. Wealthy, unfulfilled housewife Diana arranges a gathering of old friends to cheer up bereaved Colin, whose fianc?e drowned a few months earlier. Paul, her bullying, self-absorbed husband, has recently had a brief affair with Evelyn, the glamorous, young wife of his friend and incompetent business associate, John. The get-together is completed by long-suffering Marge, who has left her hypochondriac spouse ailing at home. Preparations for the party commence, sparking tensions and opening old wounds. As lingering resentments and deep-rooted jealousies surface, an unexpectedly cheerful Colin wanders into the mayhem.
Performers Ignatius Anthony, Amanda Haberland, Clare Humphrey, Gina Isaac, Ben Livingstone, David Tarkenter.
Author Alan Ayckbourn. Producer Mercury Theatre. Director Gari Jones.
