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.

"I've always been a good liar. If you have a skill, you have to hone it."

People keep telling Catriona that she's not very well.

She disagrees, but appreciates their concern.

Admittedly, she does have a history of making stuff up, but she's getting better.

However, when she meets an attractive American tourist, she decides to show him round her small Northern Irish town.

And soon she's introducing him to a world of cannibals, atrocities committed by the English, and the largest orgy ever held in Ireland on consecrated ground...
