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.


This is a story of love and loss, of betrayal and deception, of sex and a city, of wounded pride and attempted retribution - of plumply inviting sofa cushions. Godofredo is naturally indolent, adequately successful in his working life and quite happy with his seemingly comfortable marriage to Ludovina. When he discovers her in an extremely compromising position on his favourite yellow sofa with his business partner Machado, he doesn't know how to react but knows he must do something. His honour has been off ended, he will have to challenge Machado to a duel, but he would much prefer life to return to normal.

Music Julian Philips. Lyrics Edward Kemp.
