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.

What is currently on at Swan Theatre (V136)


Flamboyant, fearless and utterly amoral, Volpone, 'the old fox', robs men of their wealth, their wives and their wits. One of the most popular of Jonson's plays, this classic comedy savagely dissects a society governed by corruption and convention, and explores the nature of the 'self-made man'.
Author Ben Jonson
