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.
An old couple live alone at the top of a building, their world has been destroyed by failure and humiliation. To justify their sad lives, they throw a party and invite guests from all walks of life to hear their story, told by a professional orator. This is a tragic farce, a black comedy, depicting the unreality of life and its emptiness, where the meaning is not in what is said but in the underlying passion and commitment. A tragic farce, produced for the first time by Britain's only professional company of visually impaired artists.Performers Tim Gebbels, Heather Gilmore.
