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.

Synopsis


People say that in a time long, long ago, animals walked on two feet and spoke with words, like we do.


And back then it was known by everyone that the cleverest of all the animals in the kingdom was a spider - the infamous Anansi - the original trickster and the master spinner of yarns.


But sometimes Anansi could be a little too clever for his own good …


Created and directed by Unicorn Theatre Artistic Director Justin Audibert, this retelling of the classic West African and Caribbean folk tales, for ages 3 - 7, will be bought vividly to life for all ages to enjoy outdoors on the theatre lawn.
