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.
13 to 22 Jul 2021

"He can see the horizon, beyond today."
Summer sun, clear sky.
Mother sends you to the market in your plastic slippers on a mission for cucumbers, and you return with a fiancé.
Before you blink: a new home, a new baby, a new life planned.
Neighbours mention troubling protests, but those are a far-off news story - until the moment it explodes onto your doorstep.
When your world falls apart, it's left to you to make a decision.
It's time to leave.
