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.

Show details


This is bout those men

who stripped him of his crown,

treated that charcoal skin like concrete.

Peace will only come

when I make em come undone.

Femi is visited by her brother's ghost.

He takes her into the past, revealing the final moments before his murder.

But with a lack of evidence and eyewitnesses considered unreliable, Femi is determined to set things right herself.
