Theatres and the coronavirus outbreak


London theatres are permitted to open again to live audiences from Monday 17 May 2021.


Some smaller theatres have already made plans to reopen, though this does not apply yet to all venues.


Many of the big, popular shows in the West End have delayed reopening until later in the summer or Autumn.


We advise checking theatre websites for details about their particular reopening schedule and what you can expect when visiting.

The Space

Set in a diverse and multicultural community in late-Roman Britain, this modern comedy takes a tongue-in-cheek look at how opportunists use emotion to influence and manipulate their way to their own ends, regardless of the consequences.

Synopsis


Caerleon, a small harbour town in the south of Wales, feels very far indeed from the epicentre of the vast, sprawling Roman Empire.


The local 'bishop', Adelfius, has almost given up on his mission to convert the disinterested locals, and spends more time trying to impress the famed courtesan Afra than he does spreading the good news.


However, the recent appearance of the devout Jewish Christian Aaron, and the impending arrival of the young, impressionable Roman noble, Julia, might just be the miracle Adelfius needs to put Christianity (and more importantly, himself) on this part of the map.


Set in a diverse and multicultural community in late-Roman Britain, this modern comedy takes a tongue-in-cheek look at how opportunists use emotion to influence and manipulate their way to their own ends, regardless of the consequences.


Identity politics satire in Roman Britain; historically accurate but with 2020 overtones.
