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.
The people and history of a country house. A dazzling elaborate comedy of ideas. This is Stoppard of 'Jumpers' and 'Travesties' fixed by sublime abstraction and human absurdity. The plot revolves on a scandal that rocked the household of Lady Croom almost 200 years ago: a sexual liaison, possibly involving Lord Byron and resulting in a fatal duel. But did events really take place as they seem, and how does the Croom's handsome and dashing young tutor and his brilliant pupil Thomasina fit into the story? All will be revealed or will it? First performed at the National Theatre in 1993, this is a dazzling comedy of ideas.Performers Issy van Randwyck (Lady Croom), Robert Hands (Septimus), Pascal Langdale (Valentine), Eleanor David (Hannah), Beth Chalmers (Chloe), Laura Howard (Thomasina), Jay Villiers (Bernard), Will Adamsdale (Gus), James Benson (Captain Brice), Simon Cole (Noakes), David Tysall (Jellaby), Fergus Webster (Ezra).
