Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak
From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).
Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.
However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.
The show below will not currently be playing and is scheduled to close by 15 August 2020 (when theatres can reopen for indoor performances).
Original performance dates are given below and reflect any changes we know about.
Closed 6 Jul 2019

“Love is like a cactus.”
Nat and James work together, struggling against a possibly imagined attraction, without the space to explore their chemistry.
Dissecting the pressures of modern day romance and a feeling of complacency, Shadows sees Nat delve into fantasy, never sure if James is flirting with her, or if they are edging closer to friendship.
As her expectations move further away from reality, Nat must try to break away from a life where she feels desperately stuck.
When attraction isn't as simple as love at first sight, how do our brains compensate for our innate desire to be loved?
