Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak


England is cautiously moving out of national lockdown due to the coronavirus epidemic, but London theatres remain closed to audiences.


The government has not announced firm dates for theatres to open in England, though a suggested date for indoor performances to restart has been given as 17 May 2021, with capacity restrictions.


Larger theatres may be back with full capacity audiences from 21 June.


London theatres are beginning to announce new show dates and we are updating our listings.


However, we advise checking theatre websites to confirm which shows will be playing in the future.

Show details

Synopsis


A comedy about the creator of the welfare state.


May 1945. Britain celebrates victory and cheers Winston Churchill.


The people who fought the war want a better world.


But The Labour Party Is Led By A Nonentity - "a modest little man with plenty to be modest about."


He says almost nothing.


He sits in his grey suit and puffs his pipe.


One Wit Remarked: "An empty taxi drew up and Clement Attlee got out."


How can the insignificant, passionless little Labour leader Clem Attlee possibly compete with Churchill?
