Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak


England is cautiously moving out of national lockdown due to the coronavirus epidemic, but London theatres remain closed to audiences.


The government has not announced firm dates for theatres to open in England, though a suggested date for indoor performances to restart has been given as 17 May 2021, with capacity restrictions.


Larger theatres may be back with full capacity audiences from 21 June.


London theatres are beginning to announce new show dates and we are updating our listings.


However, we advise checking theatre websites to confirm which shows will be playing in the future.

Synopsis


Featuring critically-acclaimed performances from Linda Bassett and Juliet Stevenson, the compelling production of Little Wars brought together an incredible all-star female cast, including Debbie Chazen, Natasha Karp, Catherine Russell, Sarah Solemani and Sophie Thompson, directed by Hannah Chissick.


The streaming raised over £7,500 for Women For Refugee Women during its initial run.


This incredible charity continues to support women in need during this difficult time.


Little Wars unites literary figureheads Gertrude Stein (Bassett), her girlfriend Alice Toklas (Russell), Dorothy Parker (Chazen), Lillian Hellman (Stevenson) and Agatha Christie (Thompson), with anti-fascist freedom fighter Muriel Gardiner (Solemani), in this deliciously comic and touching drama about the power of coming together for a shared cause.


Tensions are high and secrecy lingers in the air, but with libations flowing and the threat of World War II looming the guests are close to boiling point.
