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.

Synopsis


“I think there might have been a certain amount of misunderstanding.”


Greg only met Ginny a month ago, but he knows they're meant for each other.


When she announces that she's going to visit her parents, Greg decides this is the moment to ask her father for his daughter's hand.


Discovering a scribbled address, he follows her to Buckinghamshire where he finds Philip and Sheila enjoying a peaceful Sunday morning breakfast in the garden, but the only thing is - they're not Ginny's parents.


The play that made Alan Ayckbourn's name in 1967 is an enduringly funny comedy of mistaken identities and excruciating misunderstandings.
