Theatres and the coronavirus outbreak

London theatres are permitted to open again to live audiences from Monday 17 May 2021.

Some smaller theatres have already made plans to reopen, though this does not apply yet to all venues.

Many of the big, popular shows in the West End have delayed reopening until later in the summer or Autumn.

We advise checking theatre websites for details about their particular reopening schedule and what you can expect when visiting.

Herding Cats

19 to 23 May 2021

Soho Theatre

A chillingly funny play about a generation negotiating intimacy and independence in the 21st century.

Show details


Meeting the demands of modern life is as impossible as herding cats for Justine, Michael and Saddo.

To deal with work, Justine talks - a little too much - to her roommate Michael who earns a living by chatting with strangers like Saddo.

But all three will soon find that in a cold, disconnected world, words may not be enough.

Directed by Anthony Banks (The Girl on the Train, West End), this groundbreaking revival of Coxon's "brave, brutal" (Guardian) play uses the technical feats that adventurous theater artists have discovered during the pandemic and combines them with the raw intimacy of in-person performance.

This first-of-its-kind, transcontinental event features two actors performing for an in-person audience on Soho Theatre's London stage with a third actor performing live via video from the United States.

The production, simultaneously accessible online to audiences across the globe via Stellar and in-person in London via Soho Theatre, marks a new type of international collaboration.

In-person tickets can be booked through our box office, For livestream tickets, please visit Stellar's website.

Note that tickets for the livestream are sold in USD and if you are buying these tickets from the UK, you may be charged additional fees by your bank.
