Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak

England is currently in a third national lockdown due to the coronavirus epidemic, so all London theatres are closed to audiences.

The government has not announced firm dates for theatres to open in England, though a suggested date for partial reopening has been given as 17 May 2021, with larger theatres possibly back with full capacity audiences from 21 June.

We update our listings to reflect cancellations and postponements of shows, but we advise checking theatre websites to confirm which shows will be playing in the future.

Show details


Two women.

One photograph.

A young woman sends a topless selfie to her boyfriend as a bit of flirtatious fun.

When he shows it to his best friend for a laugh, he can't imagine her having any other reaction.

But what starts out as a joke soon turns into an accusation of something much darker.

At what point does admiration become a form of control? How do we say 'stop' when it becomes apparent that we are complicit in hurting other women? If someone you know to be a good person, starts to prove themselves otherwise, how do you walk away?

Background, advisory warnings

Age suitability: 14+

A new play repurposed for online viewing, from the creative team behind Scrounger, which premiered at the Finborough Theatre in February 2020 - the first of the Finborough Theatre's #FinboroughForFree original online content, new for every month during 2021.

Presented in 28 separate episodes, Late Night Staring at High Res Pixels will be streamed at 6.00pm every day from 1 February 2021 via the Finborough Theatre's YouTube channel, culminating in a recording of the whole play which will be available from 1 March until 30 March 2021.

The episodes and the full play will also be simultaneously available with subtitles on Scenesaver.

Late Night Staring at High Res Pixels explores the issue of assumed consent and how it contributes to a culture of complicity and control towards women.

Men have long held power in relationships with tools that have no name; this story aims to identify those methods.
