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.
The Red Flag charity shop in Newcastle is where Peter, Janice and April, led by unreformed Mrs Steinberg , raise money for 'good socialist causes'. The old order is threatened by the arrival of bright Young Trainee Matty who seduces Peter, then goes about radically transforming the shop into The New Red Flag, a thriving business. The staff are won over by a combination of threats and incentives and profits soar, but principles go out of the window. Will Mrs Steinberg be able to withstand Matty's boundless energy and the cash it generates, and will she pull the plug on more than just his computer? World Premiere.Performers Miriam Karlin (Mrs Steinberg), Aidan Meech (Peter), Paul Nicholls (Matty), Gay Soper (April), Jane Wood (Janice).
