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.

"No one knows we're here, to them we are invisible"
Living in limbo at an isolated Direct Provision Centre, Keicha and Jeta await decisions on their status to remain in Ireland.
Sharing a room, their memories and fantasies seep into the dank walls merging into one story.
When eighteen-year-old Hannah joins them she must fight to maintain her sense of identity or risk getting swept up in their reality.
Limited in what he can do, kind hearted Carl, battles with his morals and his position as Centre Manager.
I & the Village by Darren Donohue (2019 Bread & Roses Playwriting Award Winner) explores the consequences of long term confinement in a system designed to be flawed.
A story of longing, survival and hope.
"I've seen the world crash down but I'm still here"
