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.
This biblical epic tells the story of the House of David, which is brought to tragedy by crimes against itself. David's sons, recently home from war, begin to wonder who will succeed their ageing father. One evening Amnon, his eldest son, hears a beautiful singing voice coming from behind the wall of his father's harem. Completely captivated, he scales the wall and sets out to discover who owns this voice. The ensuing love story, both dark and moving, leads to utter disaster, as revenge and family honour divide the ambitious sons of David.Performers William Buckhurst, James Chalmers, Joseph Chance, Claire Cox, Julius D'Silva, Rebecca Johnson, Katherine Kelly, Melanie MacHugh, Joseph Millson, Vinta Morgan, Emma Pallant, Oscar Pearce, John Ramm, Matt Ryan, Peter Sproule, John Stahl, Simon Trinder, Joanna Van Kampen, John Wark, Oliver Williams.
