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

Synopsis


A Donmar Local Project.


As anti-racism movements sweep the globe, young people are pushing for political action, drawing our attention to the racialised power structures embedded within society.


Change is on the horizon.


The Donmar is located on the edge of Westminster, streets away from the historic heart of the British Empire, where statues are, for many people, a reminder of slavery and colonialism.


MONUMENTS is a Donmar Local Project led by Resident Assistant Director Sara Aniqah Malik which explores how the legacy of the Empire continues to impact our community.


Working with Sara, writer Nessah Muthy, director of photography Fẹ́mi Awójídé and movement director Kane Husbands, a company of twelve Black, Brown and multiracial young Londoners have produced a bold short film exploring their own experiences of everyday racism.


MONUMENTS will be released on youtube.com/donmarwarehouse at 11am on Tuesday 9 February.
