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.
Set in early 19th century rural England, this is the compelling and passionate story of Prue Sarn - a young woman with a facial disfigurement that is viewed with hostility by local people. Prue is an unlikely but timeless heroine who demonstrates the bravery and spirit of true beauty. How can she influence her brother to follow his heart and choose love over money? Will she ever fulfil her dream and win the love of the weaver, Kester Woodseaves. The production, performed in the open air and complete with a beautiful original score sung by choirs of up to 100 singers at each venue, will tour some spectacular outdoor venues this July in association with English Heritage, the National Trust and the Watermill Theatre, Newbury.Book by Mary Webb.
