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.


Playing for Time archiveBased on Miller's own moving screenplay of the Fania Fenellon story starring Vanessa Redgrave, Playing for Time brings to the stage the harrowing story of a group of Jewish female musicians, imprisoned in Auschwitz. The Commandant of the Camp enjoys classical music, and forces the women to literally 'play for their lives' - as long as the orchestra please him, they avoid the gas chamber.

Author Arthur Miller.
