Theatres and coronavirus

From Monday 19 July, theatres in London are allowed to operate without capacity limits.

And all legal restrictions imposed by the government will be removed.

However, most theatres will still be following procedures such as electronic ticketing etc and may require masks to be worn.

Note that some performances have been cancelled where cast or staff have tested positive and need to isolate.

We advise checking theatre websites for the latest information and what you can expect when visiting.

Show details


The clocks are set.

The line is drawn.

They've got a chance to be champions.

But at what cost?

When Ann joins Sophie's running club she's thrown into a world of regimented training and pure focus.

The two girls couldn't be more different, but soon their shared passion makes them inseparable - dreaming in lanes and lap-times, waking up picturing Olympic medals, each day stronger and faster…

But set head to head in the run up to the World Championships, they find themselves and their friendship put to the ultimate test.

As their relationships, their bodies, and their very identities are pulled into public scrutiny, does being exceptional come at too high a price?

A gripping exploration of the underside of women's athletics, Fair Play is the new work from Ella Road (The Phlebotomist) - "the most promising young playwright in Britain" (The Telegraph).
