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.

The Tragedy of Macbeth

25 Sep to 20 Nov 2021

Almeida Theatre

Yaël Farber directs James McArdle and Saoirse Ronan, in an elemental production about a world in transformation, the shadows in all of us, and one couple's spine-chilling quest for power.

"Stars, hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires."

A little later than now, in the ruins of a theatre, three witches make a prophecy.

A warrior and his wife enter the darkness.

A war begins.
