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.

I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire
Filled with laughter and tears and bursting with the music of the 1940s, it was written with the help of the 'Roses of Swynnerton', the brave women who worked at a Staffordshire munitions factory in WW2. It is their story. When war is declared in September 1939, the lives of Stoke-on-Trent's Beresford family are changed forever. With brother Harry off in the army and Dad building Anderson shelters and digging for victory, 17 year-old Lily is called up for war-work in a munitions factory, the most dangerous job on the home front. Together with thousands of ordinary women living in extraordinary times, Lily learns the lessons of life, love and loss, meets happiness and tragedy, and looks forward to the war's end and the hope of a new world.
