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.

Show details


Burn Bright have created and commissioned a unique live event to mark the anniversary of lockdown-living.

Hear Me Roar is a new online experience that offers writers a chance to say the unsaid: it will showcase premiere performances alongside an interview with inspirational writer Morgan Lloyd Malcolm (Emilia, The Globe & West End).

Using fury as a force for positive change, Hear Me Roar shouts in the face of social injustice and champions women facing adversity.

Tying in with the looming lockdown anniversary, it is a chance to come together and reflect on the highs and lows of the previous year.

Background, advisory warnings

Age suitability: Not available

The event will feature seven powerhouse new plays, written and performed by by Chantelle Dusette (Where de Mangoes Grow, Bunker Theatre), Gail Egbeson (Jollof Court, VAULT Festival), Soph Galustian (Comedy: SKETCH, Soho Theatre), Tiwa Lade (RUSH, The Space), Lauren-Nicole Mayes (Coronation Street, ITV), Anna Morris (Lee and Dean, Channel 4) and Pegeen Murphy (Dreams For Our Daughters; Royal Exchange Theatre), and will be hosted by Burn Bright co-founder Tori Allen-Martin.

Inspired by the company's conception through injustice, this unmissable event exemplifies the company's commitment to platforming new voices and opening discussions.
