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 is due to open after the reopening date given above so it is possible it will go ahead, but you are advised to check the booking link to confirm.

Synopsis


Covid-19 seems to be a sort of dirty bomb, thrown into the body to cause havoc.


On the same day that the UK government finally made the first of two decisive interventions that led to a conspicuously late lockdown, David Hare contracted Covid-19.


Nobody seemed to know much about it then, and many doctors are not altogether sure they know much more today.


Suffering a pageant of apparently random symptoms, Hare recalls the delirium of his illness, which mixed with fear, dream, honest medicine and dishonest politics to create a monologue of furious urgency and power.
