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.
John Ford's tragedy The Broken Heart
is an examination of the virtues of courage, endurance and chivalry. Sparta having secured a great victory at war, looks forward to a time of celebration and happiness - its greatest hero Ithocles returning triumphant. However, peace does not settle into the hearts of the young generation. Instead suffering sets in, and true love withers in the face of a cruel and jealous arranged marriage. A play for anyone who has loved and lost.Performers Amy Morgan (Penthea), Owen Teale (Bassanes), Luke Thompson (Ithocles), Liam Brennan, Brian Ferguson, Patrick Godfrey, Peter Hamilton Dyer, Joe Jameson, Adam Lawrence, Sarah MacRae, Sanchia McCormack, Tom Stuart, Thalissa Teixeira, Phil Whitchurch.
