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


From a private booth, you'll be drawn in close to this tale of orphaned brothers and their desperate odyssey across Europe, the action unfolding in an exquisite world of miniatures moving before you.


With their small inheritance stitched into their clothes, young Aryan and Kabir set off on an epic journey by foot from Kabul to London.


Braving bustling train stations, hazardous sea crossings, menacing strangers and threats of violence, their heart wrenching story speaks of terror, hope and survival.


Based on Caroline Brothers' novel Hinterland, Flight combines timely themes with engrossing images to honour the resilience of refugee children adrift in dangerous lands.


You'll be seated alone and given headphones for this intimate experience staged by Candice Edmunds and Jamie Harrison (magic and illusion designer for Harry Potter and The Cursed Child).


As richly detailed model sets and figures revolve to form gripping scenes, accompanied by enclosing sound and narration, the effect is of an astonishing 3-D graphic novel being unveiled.
