Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak
From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).
Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.
However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.
The show below is due to open after the reopening date given above so it is possible it will go ahead, but you are advised to check the booking link to confirm.

Sarah needed a heart transplant.
Maggie was her surgeon.
The operation ran smoothly, but there are now complications.
This is a journey of identity and transformation.
How to face death, and come out the other side.
How to find your true self in a body with foreign parts.
And how heartbreak and lovesickness - with no known cure - can make you grow.
Originally scheduled for performance in April 2020 and postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, this 'Covid edit' version of Lovesick distils the essence of the full-length play and delivers it in one concentrated shot - heightened, raw, emotional.
The relationship between patient, surgeon and donor is laid out on the operating table, ready for dissection.
