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.
On Tuesday 28 February 2002, NYT member Adeel Akhtar took a flight to New York. Until he was led away by the FBI on landing, Akhtar was unaware that his presence on Air India flight 101 had caused a major security panic including its interception by four fighter jets. Using this real life event as stimulus, a cast of eighteen tell us the tale of an accidental terrorist famous for a moment and then left searching for an understanding of who he is and where he fits into the modern world. This surreal and exhilarating production takes the audience on a roller coaster ride through the twists, turns and unexpected pirouettes of life in 2002. Inspired by Adeel Akhtar.Author John Hoggarth (and the NYT company). Company National Youth Theatre. Music Tristan Parkes. Director John Hoggarth. Other Tristan Parkes (musical supervision). Design Simon Daw. Costume Becky Brown. Lighting Matthew Eagland.
