Theatres and the coronavirus outbreak
London theatres are permitted to open again to live audiences from Monday 17 May 2021.
Some smaller theatres have already made plans to reopen, though this does not apply yet to all venues.
Many of the big, popular shows in the West End have delayed reopening until later in the summer or Autumn.
We advise checking theatre websites for details about their particular reopening schedule and what you can expect when visiting.
17 Jun to 17 Jul 2021

Sometimes you crack.
Sometimes you didn't mean to yell that.
Sometimes you have to lay low until you've figured it out
And sometimes, sometimes you have to hibernate until you've healed.
This is a new day.
Shedding a Skin is a story for our times.
A play about finding kindness in unexpected places.
A play about connecting with what our elders can teach us - new skin honouring old skin.
A play about joy, healing and protest.
And having a good belly laugh.
