CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Matthias, a young knight of Bohemia, goes off to the wars, taking with him an enchanted image of his wife Sophia which - his friend Baptisa assures him - will indicate her constancy. If she is challenged in love in his absence, the picture will yellow; if she succumbs, it will blacken. Matthias This Sumptuous production transposes the action to the mid-nineteenth century - and the birth of that other âmagic pictureâ, the photograph. It marks the 175th anniversary of the famous Oriel window negative, taken by Fox Talbot at Lacock Abbey in Wiltshire, and considered to be the first known photograph.Performers Olivia Grant, Rachel Atkins, Teresa Banham, Stephhan Bednarczyk, Christopher Good, Simon Harrison, Denise Hoey, Russell Layton, Christopher Logan, William Mannering, Roger Ringrose, Duncan Wisbey.
