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.
Wealthy landowner Arden is convinced his wife Alice is cheating on him. Despite her protestations of innocence, not only is his suspicion correct, but in order to free herself from marriage she is actively plotting to have him murdered. As Alice grows increasingly desperate to be with her lover, and her husband's ruthless business dealings generate enemies only too willing to do him harm, a series of would be murderers set off in pursuit of the unwitting Arden. Husband, wife and lover find themselves playing a deadly game as with each failed attempt, the assassins close in on their victim.Performers Joe Bannister, Ian Bonar, Peter Bray, Elspeth Brodie, Colin Brown, Faye Castelow, Keir Charles, Liz Crowther, Geoffrey Freshwater, Lizzie Hopley, Joan Iyiola, Tony Jayawardena, Christopher Middleton, Ken Nwosu, Tom Padley, Ian Redford, David Rintoul, Jay Simpson, Timothy Speyer, Harvey Virdi, Sharon Small.
