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.

Show details

Synopsis


"I thought I was going to be an astronaut, but instead of getting in a rocket to space, I found space hiding in my head instead"


When Tom grows up he wants to be an astronaut ... or the blue power ranger, they're kind of the same thing anyway, right?


But, when he has his first seizure aged 8 and a black hole opens up inside his head, his entire world is swallowed and he must find an even bigger adventure.


In this autobiographical show, developed through interviews with his parents, the real Tom tries to reconstruct this invisible part of his life which has changed him so much.


Performed by 1 actor with a soundscape of interviews, Can You See Into A Black Hole? is an epic adventure exploring one family's journey to adapt in the face of celestial scale events.


The show was originally commissioned by Upstart Theatre as part of DARE Festival 2018.
