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.

Show details

Synopsis


A lighting designer, an actress, a prop maker and a drag singer go on a pilgrimage looking for a miracle.


Even when June, the lighting designer, is diagnosed with a devastating illness, the jokes don't stop coming as a quartet of theatre friends career across France, glugging red wine, and hoping to find a miracle at Lourdes for June, a nonbeliever who thinks the only good thing about religion is the lighting.


They'll soon discover that miracles come in many different forms.


Last Easter is a funny, moving and provocative play about the true nature of friendship.
