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.
For ten years in the middle of the seventeenth century, England was governed by radical extremists. Fuelled by unshakeable religious conviction, soldiers killed the king believing that Christ would come to replace him. Theirs was a war to establish heaven on earth. To those who believed in the established order, it must have seemed that the future was in the hands of the terrorists. Written in 1976, Light Shining in Buckinghamshire speaks directly to our own political moment. A dramatic collage of the most turbulent period of our history, it tells the story of a group of men and women who thought they had glimpsed a spark of unspeakable, transcendent glory. It is impossible not to hear echoes of our own times.Performers Trystan Gravelle, Joshua James, Amanda Lawrence, Ashley McGuire, Simon Manyonda, Alan Williams, Leo Bill, Joe Caffrey, Elizabeth Chan, Jonathan Dryden Taylor, Daniel Flynn, Nicholas Gleaves, Trystan Gravelle, Ash Hunter, Joshua James, Amanda Lawrence, Adelle Leonce, Ashley McGuire, Simon Manyonda, Ann Ogbomo, Steffan Rhodri, Joseph Rowe, Alan Williams, Sargon Yelda.
