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.

Synopsis


From an epic Polish poem of independence to a 1930s Chinese tragedy.

A Yiddish folktale of tormented spirits to a contemporary Indian family drama.

What is a classic play and who decides?


Taking place from 19 May - 5 June, both live at the Almeida and online, is Six Artists in Search of a Play.


Ebenezer Bamgboye, Atri Banerjee, Nastazja Domaradzka, Anthony Lau, Audrey Sheffield and Cherrelle Skeete present seminal plays and new works from across the globe that have often been overlooked by British theatre.


Each artist will direct a semi-staged reading of their chosen play, and curate a programme of live music, dance and panel discussions exploring theatrical traditions from around the world.


Events will be performed to socially distanced audiences at the Almeida and made available digitally at a later date.
