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.
Closed 19 Oct 2019

An exhilarating new theatre project led by Emma Frankland, alongside very special guests.
Built from conversations with trans women and trans feminine people around the world, particularly the UK, Indonesia, Canada and Brazil, We Dig centres around the actual excavation of a giant hole - a literal representation of a queer community needing to bury itself for protection.
Live, direct and set to smash, rather than just break the mould, We Dig sees Emma and guests taking complete control as they dig deep into the historic Ovalhouse building to initiate our final season.
We Dig focuses on trans artists, communicating elements of their global situation, particularly targeting the needs of women and girls.
A collaborative devised process with other trans artists, including One From the Vaults host Morgan M Page and Indonesian celebrity and performance artist Tamara Pertamina.
We Dig will feature an innovative and exciting trans artist as the guest performer each night.
