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 21 Mar 2020

Based on a true story.
In the remote Scottish Highlands two women arrive at a former Crofters Hut in the deserted village of Coillie Ghille.
When suddenly the weekend getaway takes an unexpected turn.
Cut off from the modern world, Laura and Suzanne find themselves drawn into the dark history of the Croft and the lives that passed before them.
In this bold and haunting new play the present interweaves with the past as ancient tales surface and the terrifying truth lurking In the Croft is revealed.
