Theatres and the coronavirus outbreak

London theatres are permitted to open again to live audiences from Monday 17 May 2021.

Some smaller theatres have already made plans to reopen, though this does not apply yet to all venues.

Many of the big, popular shows in the West End have delayed reopening until later in the summer or Autumn.

We advise checking theatre websites for details about their particular reopening schedule and what you can expect when visiting.

Show details


'My Son's A Queer (But What Can You Do?)' celebrates the joy and the chaos of raising a queer kid.

When Rob was 12, they attempted to stage a full-blown Disney parade in their house for their Grandma.

As Rob donned a wig and played Mary Poppins, Ariel, Mickey Mouse and Belle, their Dad doubled as Stage Manager, Sound Technician and Goofy.

Unfortunately, Dad missed all his cues and pushed all the floats in the wrong direction.

Mum mistook Aladdin for Ursula.

The costumes went awry.

Ariel's bubble gun didn't even work properly.

Grandma had a nice time though.

Join Rob as they delve into the archives of their old home videos in attempt to recreate this parade and celebrate the joy that can be discovered when parents champion the creativity and absurdity of their child.
