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'.

The eccentric couple were renowned for their table manners, surprised guests would often endure shrill arguments - waged entirely among the family - which often ended with them storming out of the room, leaving their bewildered guests to make what they could of the rest of the evening.Performers Judi Dench (Dame - Judith Bliss), Peter Bowles (David Bliss), Belinda Lang (Myra Arundel), Kim Medcalf (Sorel Bliss), Charles Edwards, Dan Stevens.
