CORONAVIRUS: 22Feb21 UpdateAll UK venues closed on 16th March 2020. After the Prime Minister's announcement it would appear that, subject to continued control of the virus, venues may re-open with social distancing and limits on audiences from 17th May. Social distancing restrictions may be removed from 21st June. We will continue to update our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as/when they are reported.
An Edwardian waiting room in an English train station. Two persons waiting....One, small in stature, of murky origins in Ireland, wears nevertheless the uniform of an inspector-general of army hospitals. The other is from a wealthy, upright English family. Both have striven to be reformers in their work, but only one of them has been honoured for it: Florence Nightingale. The other achieved fame - indeed infamy - only after her death. They seem to be strangers to each other , but they are not entirely so. Once upon a time in a far away place they had a bitter encounter.....Performers Claire Bloom (Florence Nightingale), Kathryn Hunter (Dr Barry).
