Theatres and coronavirus
From Monday 19 July, theatres in London are allowed to operate without capacity limits.
And all legal restrictions imposed by the government will be removed.
However, most theatres will still be following procedures such as electronic ticketing etc and may require masks to be worn.
Note that some performances have been cancelled where cast or staff have tested positive and need to isolate.
We advise checking theatre websites for the latest information and what you can expect when visiting.
Closed 31 Dec 2021

A lonely son, while searching for his brother, loses himself.
Across town a wife starts to realise her husband is not the man she thought he was (but rather likes it).
Will anything ever be the same again?
