Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak


London theatres have been closed from 16 December 2020 as London is now in Tier 4 restrictions due to the coronavirus outbreak.


At present, the government has not announced a date when theatres and other entertainment venues can reopen.


We are updating 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.



What's In A Name?

10 to 14 Aug 2021

The Churchill Theatre

You are invited to take a seat at the table for a riotously funny evening that questions whether a person's name truly reflects who they are.

Show details

Synopsis


Father-to-be Vincent and his partner Anna are invited to dinner by his sister Elizabeth and her husband, Peter.


They are joined by childhood friend Carl for a mature and sophisticated gathering.


The meal is lovingly prepared, and wine carefully selected.


The friends are prepared for the usual humorous exchanges they've come to expect.


But tonight, a startling revelation about the name chosen for Vincent's and Anna's expected child becomes the catalyst for a destructive argument which spirals hysterically out of control.


Tonight no one is holding back!


Egos, childish resentment and unspoken feelings are relentlessly and hilariously exposed for the first time.
