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.

The Wipers Times archiveIn a bombed out building during the First World War in the French town of Ypres, two officers discover a printing press and create a newspaper for the troops. Far from being a sombre journal about life in the trenches they produced a resolutely cheerful, subversive and very funny newspaper designed to lift the spirits of the men on the frontline. Defying enemy bombardment, gas attacks and the disapproval of many of the top Brass, The Wipers Times rolled off the press for two years and was an extraordinary tribute to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming adversity.
Performers Kevin Brewer (Henderson), Clio Davies (Lady Somersby/Madame Fifi), Sam Ducane (Lieutenant Colonel Howfield), James Dutton (Captain Roberts), George Kemp (Lieutenant Pearson), Chris Levens (Dodd), Dan Mersh (Deputy Editor/Gen Mitford/Sgt Tyler), Jake Morgan (Barnes), Joseph Reed (Chaplain/Bobbing Bobby), Emilia Williams (Kate Roberts).
Author Ian Hislop. Author Nick Newman. Producer Bob Benton. Producer David Parfitt. Director Caroline Leslie. Design Dora Schweitzer. Music Nick Green. Lighting James Smith. Sound Steve Mayo. Musical Director Paul Herbert. Other Simon Friend Entertainment (General Manager).
