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.

Show details

Synopsis


No lights.


No music.


No props.


Moving.


And speaking.


And moving and speaking.


And skanking and moving and speaking.


Some nodding.


Pulsing.


Also bopping.


And shaking.


And shaking shaking.


Scrambling.


And speaking.


And pointing:


Pointing at the space when others see my face.

Pointing at addiction and how that makes us who we are.

Pointing at divorce and how that makes us who we are.

Pointing at Britain and old actors and privilege and how that makes me who I am.

Pointing at the Sun and speaking about white golden things.


Today, Britain continues to benefit from its colonial past.


A nation passionately caught up with being right, being the exception to the rule, and making profit at any cost.


Children of divorced parents are 50% more likely to develop mental health problems.


Addiction is a primary cause of preventable death, ruining lives, and consuming vast amounts of medical resources.


Will is white, British, straight, and privately educated.


He grew up in a wealthy suburb inside the M25 and now lives in a Victorian house in Liverpool.


Divorced parents; addictions to food, exercise, and attention.


Is there a way of coming to terms with this identity, this past, and his privilege?

Any hope? Any space for a voice and moving body beyond a maelstrom of inequality?
