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.
In a small town in Yorkshire, a beautiful widow is being wooed by two suitors. Fresh from the City and with endless money to dispose of, the older one showers her with gifts - which the younger (handsome, impecunious, an inveterate gambler) wants to put to better use. A love triangle, then; a tale of rivalry and avarice. But money's a slippery commodity and all is not quite as it seems. Throw in a bailiff, a drunkard, a vamp, a second-hand clothes dealer and two upwardly mobile servants, and the complications multiply. Adapted from Alain-Rene Lesage's savage eighteenth-century comedy Turcaret, Blake Morrison's For Love or Money is a story of monstrous wealth and whopping lies.Performers Barrie Rutter, Matt Booth (Ruddle - bank clerk), Jim English (Martin - Farmer), Jordan Metcaalfe (Jack - odd job man/Hever - baliff), Sarah Parks (Teresa - a visitor), Sarah-Jane Potts (Rose - a widow), Kat Rose-Martin (Lisa - Maid), Joss Vantyler (Arthur - doctor's son), Jacky Naylor (Marlene - housekeeper Gwen).
