Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak


England is currently in a third national lockdown due to the coronavirus epidemic, so all London theatres are closed to audiences.


The government has not announced firm dates for theatres to open in England, though a suggested date for partial reopening has been given as 17 May 2021, with larger theatres possibly back with full capacity audiences from 21 June.


We update our listings to reflect cancellations and postponements of shows, but we advise checking theatre websites to confirm which shows will be playing in the future.

Synopsis


Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-Winning American classic To Kill a Mockingbird comes to the West End from Broadway in a new adaptation by Aaron Sorkin, directed by Bartlett Sher.

The character of Scout, based on herself, has come to define youthful innocence - and its inevitable loss - for generation after generation of readers around the world.
