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.
Playing until 6 Mar 2021

PUNCHING HORSES is a new play from award winning writer Mark A. C. Brown.
His first in a decade after working predominantly in film.
The play is about two foster brothers, Tankard and Paddle, who are on the run after the death of their mother leads to an unexpected murder.
On their way to what they hope is a new start Tankard and Paddle break into occupied houses to lie low.
But events escalate from hilarious hijinks into violent tragedy as they fail to stay in control of their situation and more importantly their own minds.
It is a dark tragi-comedy about co-dependence, brotherhood, mental illness and quite a bit of killing.
