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 will not currently be playing and is scheduled to close by 15 August 2020 (when theatres can reopen for indoor performances).
Original performance dates are given below and reflect any changes we know about.
Closed 5 Oct 2019

There's more to this award-winning play than a few cheap laughs and the occasional naughty giggle.
It's really a brief analysis of the British sense of humour as it was twenty-five years ago when Benny Hill, Frankie Howerd and Morecambe and Wise were on the telly.
But it's also about the hurt suffered by a wife desperate for a child and a husband too busy still laughing at dead comedians.
As the play begins Benny Hill has died and the Dead Funny Society is meeting to celebrate his life.
But as the laughs get fewer and the voices get louder the suspicions get deeper and the relationships are stretched.
