CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. 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. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
An older couple, Grace and Milton, now find their farm near Ruthin difficult to manage. Their son-in-law suggests developing the site with its historical associations, as a visitor centre, starting now in the summer of 2014 with a dramatisation of All Quiet On The Western Front. As the performance is about to begin, a mysterious stranger appears with a story which troubles Grace. Local people now re-enact scenes from the novel, while Grace, as narrator, confronts not only the historical past but also her own. The play moves on towards its inevitable finale where past and present merge in a violent conclusion. Contains Strong Language, brief male nudity and loud bangs.
