Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak

England is cautiously moving out of national lockdown due to the coronavirus epidemic, but London theatres remain closed to audiences.

The government has not announced firm dates for theatres to open in England, though a suggested date for indoor performances to restart has been given as 17 May 2021, with capacity restrictions.

Larger theatres may be back with full capacity audiences from 21 June.

London theatres are beginning to announce new show dates and we are updating our listings.

However, we advise checking theatre websites to confirm which shows will be playing in the future.

Show details


The programme includes JEW...ish, a quickfire romantic comedy exploring sex, polamory and Jewish identity; Vespertilio, an atmospheric tale of love, loneliness, bats and the unlikely connection between two gay men; Sacrament; a powerfully funny monologue about a young Irish Catholic woman questioning her sexuality; I Wish My Life Were Like A Musical, a sparkling revue show about the tumultuous world of musical theatre, on stage and off; and Illusions of Liberty, a searing exploration of invisible illness against the backdrop of a deeply 'hostile environment.'
