Theatres and coronavirus
From Monday 19 July, theatres in London are allowed to operate without capacity limits.
And all legal restrictions imposed by the government will be removed.
However, most theatres will still be following procedures such as electronic ticketing etc and may require masks to be worn.
Note that some performances have been cancelled where cast or staff have tested positive and need to isolate.
We advise checking theatre websites for the latest information and what you can expect when visiting.

How well portrayed are queer characters in new British playwriting?
Do we need more LGBTQ+ stories about ordinary lives, extraordinarily lived?
PROUD seeks to address alternative narratives.
When his Pentecostal mother dies, Roland - black, 40 - decides to live openly as a gay man.
He relocates from Brixton to E17, where he unexpectedly falls for Amir, a street sweeper - 21, an immigrant from a war zone.
But, what gets in the way is Amir's post-traumatic stress, his inability to identify as gay and Roland's relationship with his gifted, 15-year-old son, Gary.
PROUD is a compelling story for our time about loss and love, identity and the need to belong.
