Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak

London theatres have been closed from 16 December 2020 as London is now in Tier 4 restrictions due to the coronavirus outbreak.

At present, the government has not announced a date when theatres and other entertainment venues can reopen.

Show details


"What is gonna happen, when we can't take it anymore?"

Stumbling down the street drunk at 11.30am Effie is the kind of girl you avoid making eye contact with.

You think you know her, but maybe you don't know the half of it.

Effie's life is a mess of drink, drugs and drama every night, and a hangover worse than death the next day - till one night gives her the chance to be something more.
