Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak


England is cautiously moving out of national lockdown due to the coronavirus epidemic, but London theatres remain closed to audiences.


The government has not announced firm dates for theatres to open in England, though a suggested date for indoor performances to restart has been given as 17 May 2021, with capacity restrictions.


Larger theatres may be back with full capacity audiences from 21 June.


London theatres are beginning to announce new show dates and we are updating our listings.


However, we advise checking theatre websites to confirm which shows will be playing in the future.

Synopsis


Two Oxford undergraduates, Jack and Charley, in an attempt to woo two girls, invite them over for lunch to meet Charley's aunt.


However, when they learn that her visit has been postponed last minute, they persuade their fellow student Lord Fancourt to dress up and impersonate the aunt.


The reading will be streamed live on YouTube on Sunday 11th April, 7.30pm and available to stream Monday 12th - Sunday 18th April.


While providing a hilarious streamed evening of entertainment, the reading will also be raising funds for the Equity Charitable Trust, which provides financial support to those in need in the theatre industry.
