Delayed but not daunted
TADS, like the rest of the world, has been affected by lockdown. We haven’t been able to meet or rehearse in the real world, but we haven’t given up! We will be restarting rehearsals for Harvey; and as long as it’s possible, we will be putting on a performance in 2022.
Meanwhile we have an exciting event lanned for autumn 2021!
