Theatres and coronavirus
From Monday 19 July, theatres in London are allowed to operate without capacity limits.
And all legal restrictions imposed by the government will be removed.
However, most theatres will still be following procedures such as electronic ticketing etc and may require masks to be worn.
Note that some performances have been cancelled where cast or staff have tested positive and need to isolate.
We advise checking theatre websites for the latest information and what you can expect when visiting.

1950. Apartheid South Africa.
St George's Park Tea Room, Port Elizabeth, 1950.
On a long rainy afternoon, employees Sam and Willie practice their steps for the finals of the ballroom dancing championship.
Hally arrives from school to hide out in his parents' tea room.
These two men have been unlikely best friends to Hally his whole life.
But it is apartheid era South Africa: he's Master Harold, and they are the boys.
Tony Award-winning playwright Athol Fugard's semi-autobiographical and blistering masterwork explores the nature of friendship, and the ways people are capable of hurting even those they love.
