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.

I look over at you. You're like a statue.
But not a statue.
Not rock, nor chained to a rock.
Flesh. Blood. Bone.
In modern London, two girls meet under a starry sky.
In ancient Ethiopia, a hero saves a princess, chained to a rock.
Somewhere not quite either, first love meets its match.
Andromeda by Hannah Greenstreet reimagines a lost play, constellating ancient fragments with a contemporary queer love story.
This exploration of the stories we tell each other asks what happens when a young woman falls for someone unexpected, and how to feel proud when the world tells us not to be.
What do you do when you're stuck between a myth and a hard place?
