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.
An ordinary farm labourer's wife and unborn child die in childbirth. Unable to accept this cruelty, the ploughman sues Death, who duly appears to answer the charges. Although written in 1401, Death and the Ploughman
perfectly sums up the attitude we still have towards grief, and the arrogance still innate in man which belies his own environment and mortality. Runner up of the Gate Translation Award 2002.Performers Tim Barlow, Madeleine Bowyer, Simon Meacock, Ben Nealon.
