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.

I slip into Thandi's bed in the night.
I crack her ribs and climb deep inside her chest
So I never have to leave.
Yolandi is the rebel, Thandi the school swot.
In the scorching heat of a Johannesburg summer, an unexpected bond is formed.
Two girls battle their way through unfamiliar feelings and the guilt of their country's legacy.
As they wait for the rains to come, their worlds come crashing together and we're asked - are we ever really free from the scars of the past?
