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.

Show details


An everyday comedy

Sharon and Barry are done with baking, Joe Wicks & Netflix and have stumbled upon Sharon's old battered school text of Romeo & Juliet in their loft.

After a bit of a read and a watch of the classic, the couple's been inspired to have a crack at the play themselves…

They've hacked out the boring bits, worked out playing all the parts, and the props have just arrived from Amazon!

So, join them live from their living room for this inadvertently hilarious, but surprisingly touching, take on Shakespeare's most romantic story.
