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.
Love and marriage, birth and death. Seen from a distance they're just the rhythm of everyday life: but when you're caught up in the middle and they're happening to you, they're the whole world. A bona fi de American classic, OUR TOWN tells the story of Emily and George, two unremarkable teenagers growing up in a small New Hampshire town at the turn of the last century. You're invited to eavesdrop on this tightly wound community as events unfold - both the apparently trivial and the deeply profound - across the course of a decade. Rich with detail and shot through with a distinctive mix of light and shade, Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer Prize-winning smalltown epic of human existence remains as theatrically fresh and as topical as ever: OUR TOWN, but also, unmistakably, yours.Performers Youssef Kerkour (Stage Manager), Norah Lopez Holden (Emily Webb), Patrick Elue (George Gibbs), Carla Henry (Mrs Julia Gibb), Nicolas Khan (Dr Gibbs), Graeme Hawley (Mr Webb), Lyllie Longmore (Professor Willard), Patricia Allison, Kelly Hotten, Chris Jack, Luke Matthews, Tarek Merchant, Nadia Nadarajah, Michael Peace, Eamonn Riley.
