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.
A nostalgic and tender look back at life in the North East over the last century. The stories of three generations unfold in a backyard in Jarrow, where songs are sung and tales are told; bombs fall and oranges grow; where the great issues of the day - football, unemployment, politics and football - are argued over, where a small boy learns everything about life which really matters, from the ancient craft of making netty paper from newspaper to HomeGuard drill with a broomstick; where Reuben the toad is lost and found, and where, beyond the yard walls, lions and buffaloes roam the plains of Tyneside.Performers John Woodvine, Deka Walmsley, Gez Casey, Zoe Lambert, Carol McGuigan, Donald McBride, Madaleine Moffatt.
