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 Lion in Winter archiveThis powerful play is based on the final years of the reign of King Henry II of England. His eldest son is dead, whilst his wife and remaining sons fight against him and each other. Henry's powerful and alluring Queen Eleanor, is determined to secure the succession of her favourite son, while Henry plays his sons off against one another. The story is fraught with deceit, rivalry, jealousy and ambition. Henry and his sons ruled England for over sixty years. They brought fire, passion, wantonness and greed into the business of governing England. They had few scruples and killed with impunity, turning on each other without hesitation. This gripping play follows the couple as Henry, still in towering command, and Eleanor fight an underlying battle for allegiance of their devil's brood, while still fatally attracted to each other's lust for power.
