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 Soldier's Fortune archive1680. Beaugard and Courtine return to London from wars abroad - empty handed and disenchanted. Beaugard hits on a brilliant scheme to improve their fortunes. Clarinda, unhappily married to the aged, infatuated Sir Davey Dunce, concocts a plan to reverse her fortunes. And Sir Jolly Jump, one of the great portraits of wayward sexuality, sets about helping the lovers, thereby enhancing his fortunes... Otway s restoration comedy is brutally, hilariously modern - but the undertow of deep sensuality suggests it is a missing link between Much Ado About Nothing and Oscar Wilde.

Author Thomas Otway.
