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.

The operatic spectacle Faust, Alberta explores the tragic story of Doctor Faustus and his fatal deal with Mephistopheles from a contemporary angle.
A Nameless Man finds himself in a remote cabin surrounded by frozen snowfields.
He doesn't know who he is nor where he is from, only that something is after him - an unstoppable machine that hunts those who fell from grace.
In nine scenes, he tries to collect his memory.
Triggered by snippets from his past, he slowly starts to put the pieces together.
