UKTW - 25 years online
CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021.

Too True to be Good - A Political Extravaganza archiveA rich young woman catches a pair of burglars in her bedroom, but instead of calling the police she decides to run off with them, and live off the proceeds of her own burglary. The three embark on a permanent beach holiday, a life of fabulous wealth and total freedom. Written in 1932, during the last great economic collapse, Too True To Be Good asks what we would do if we finally got everything we ever wanted. A bizarrely hilarious and unfortunately contemporary analysis of out-of-control wealth, this is a side of Shaw we rarely see - as the grand old man of the theatre leaves the drawing-room for the beach. First performed in New York and London in 1932, it has not been seen in London since 1975 (in a Royal Shakespeare Company production with Ian McKellen and Judi Dench that transferred to the West End) and 1986 (Mike Alfreds’ Shared Experience production at the Riverside Studios). In 2006, it played to great acclaim at Canada’s Shaw Festival.
Performers Steven Alexander, Alex Blake, Emily Bowker, Roger Braban, James Clarkson, James Hogg, Tai Lawrence, Olivia Lumley, Graham Seed, Jenny Lee.
Author George Bernard Shaw. Producer Bitter Pill Productions. Director Sarah Norman. Design Ruth Hall. Lighting Peter Harrison.
