Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak
From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).
Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.
However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.
The show below will not currently be playing and is scheduled to close by 15 August 2020 (when theatres can reopen for indoor performances).
Original performance dates are given below and reflect any changes we know about.
Closed 7 Dec 2019

Arcola's first co-production with the Royal Shakespeare Company is a vital story about the cost of reporting the truth in the age of fake news.
When a journalist is sent a flash-drive containing critical evidence of illegal government activity, he is duty-bound to publish the story.
But with the nation destabilised and divided, a sinister power is eroding the rule of law.
What price will he pay for speaking out?
#WeAreArrested is a gripping play about fighting for truth in a network of lies.
Background, advisory warnings
Age suitability: Not available
Adapted from the book by Can Dündar, who was arrested for publishing footage of Turkish State Intelligence sending weapons into Syria, this deeply personal and universal story finds urgent new life as authoritarian politics spread across the globe.
