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.

Synopsis


Would you have risked everything to challenge ignorance about AIDS?


It's 1987.


Princess Diana's landmark visit to a London AIDS ward has sparked world-wide interest, camera crews and a televised interview.


But AIDS remains taboo.


Even being seen to work on this ward could cost you everything.


To change public misconceptions, would you risk it?


Told through the eyes of Jude, a nurse on the ward, Andrew, a patient, and Donnie, a fireman estranged from his son, this ground-breaking new play Moment of Grace tells how the Princess's visit brought critical attention to AIDS awareness through empathy and acts of kindness.
