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.

Show details


It's 1975.

In Leeds, the Millgarth Incident Room is the epicentre of the biggest manhunt in British police history.

We follow Sergeant Megan Winterburn as she joins hundreds of officers working around the clock to find the man known as the Yorkshire Ripper.

With public pressure mounting, the investigation resorts to increasingly audacious attempts to catch one of Britain's most notorious serial killers.

Following the award-winning productions of Secret Life of Humans and Down & Out in Paris and London, we go behind the scenes and investigate the case that broke the British police force.
