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.

Synopsis


A thrilling adventure set in an alternative history of England, The Wolves of Willoughby Chase tells the story of two brave and determined girls as they fight against ferocious wolves and battle their way through wastelands to defeat their very evil guardian, Miss Slighcarp.


This exciting, fun filled adaptation of Joan Aiken's classic children's novel sees cousins Bonnie and Sylvia and their friend Simon the Gooseboy encountering a host of unforgettable characters as they discover that the wolves roaming the forests and fields outside may not be as dangerous as the wolfish adults plotting inside…


Writer Joan Aiken won the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize, the Edgar Allen Poe Award and was awarded an MBE for her services to children's literature in 1999.


A magical, musical treat, this family production plays alongside our production of Pinocchio in a special new summer repertory season and is the perfect way to celebrate the return of theatre and summer in true theatrical style.
