Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak


England is currently in a third national lockdown due to the coronavirus epidemic, so all London theatres are closed to audiences.


The government has not announced firm dates for theatres to open in England, though a suggested date for partial reopening has been given as 17 May 2021, with larger theatres possibly back with full capacity audiences from 21 June.


We update our listings to reflect cancellations and postponements of shows, but we advise checking theatre websites to confirm which shows will be playing in the future.

Synopsis


Good Grief, directed by Natalie Abrahami (Anna, National Theatre, Machinal, Almeida), is a romantic comedy about grief.


Sharp, funny, brutal, irreverent and quintessentially British.


At a time when the theatre world is faltering, with theatres closed and jobs cut, this online filmed production sees the convergence of a new theatre and screen team to create a theatrical format which will stream online and be downloadable worldwide, giving employment to the industry.


Background, advisory warnings


Age suitability: 16+


Good Grief was rehearsed on Zoom, then filmed in a studio adhering to all Covid protocols.


Gala Gordon and Isabella Macpherson, of Platform Presents will co-produce with Amy Gardner of Finite Films.


Also part of this predominantly female strong team are Isobel Waller-Bridge, re-partnering with Sian Clifford having worked with Sian on Fleabag, who is developing the sound design and score.


Alongside her is Fin Oates as Editor, (I Hate Suzie...), award-winning Emma Dalesman as Director of Photography, and Natalie Pryce as Production Designer (winner, Production Designer, Black Theatre Awards 2020).


Good Grief follows the success of Platform Presents' world first, online, live, theatrical production of Tom Stoppard's A Perfect Peace starring David Morrissey, Jenna Coleman, Denise Gough, Ed Stoppard and Maggie Service, which garnered a clutch of 5-star reviews in in May 2020.
