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.
22 to 30 Oct 2021

On another earth, in another time, where nature is revered and life is full of dangers, two tribes are locked in an age-old battle.
One has the secret of fire, the other wants it.
One young woman must decide: protect the life she knows or burn it down.
