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.

The Coast of Utopia: Salvage

The Coast of Utopia: SalvageT01352211870
The Coast of Utopia comprises three sequential but self-contained plays, 'Voyage', 'Shipwreck' and 'Salvage'. They tell an epic story of romantics and revolutionaries caught up in the struggle for political freedom in an age of emperors. Set in the mid-19th century in Russia and Europe, the trilogy follows a group of friends who come of age under the Tsarist autocracy of Nicholas I. Among them are the idealist and anarchist Michael Bakunin who was to challenge Marx for the soul of the masses; Ivan Turgenev, author of some of the most enduring works in Russian literature; the brilliant, erratic young critic Vissarion Belinsky; and Alexander Herzen, a nobleman's son and the first self-proclaimed socialist in Russian history, who becomes the main focus of a drama of politics, love, , loss and betrayal. The action, involving more than fifty characters, takes in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Paris, Nice and London.
Author Tom Stoppard
