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 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).
