Theatres in London are currently closed. In the West End, the closure will continue at least until 26 April.
The show below is due to open after that date so (on current information) it is likely to go ahead as scheduled.

The personal and the political are always inseparably entwined, but what happens when the personal becomes political and threatens an already unstable empire?
This may appear to be Ancient Rome and a long lost Egypt but Shakespeare's experiment with love and power, reputation and regret, fake news and the painful truth, lives and breathes now, has stood the test of time, and is about to be radically and raucously reimagined.
Cleopatra, the alluring and fascinatingly ambiguous Queen of Egypt, has bewitched the great Mark Antony, soldier, campaigner and now one of the three rulers of the Roman Empire.
When Antony quarrels with his fellow leaders and throws in his lot with Cleopatra, his infatuation threatens to split the Empire in two.
