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 haunting tale of life, love and community set in Ireland. Bridie lives with her elderly father on their isolated farm. It's a hard life, and Bridie knows she needs a husband. A solid working man who can pull his weight on the farm. So on Saturday night, she shakes out her dreams and her dancing frock and sets off for Mr Dwyer's Ballroom of Romance. Because one day he
might be there. Waltzing under the glitterball, the handsome man who'll lead her up the aisle tot he glamorous sound of the Romantic Jazz Band. But time's getting on, and as Bridie well knows, beggars can't be choosers. So nearly a love story, The Ballroom of Romance
is a tender celebration of ordinary life.
