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


Following the success of two YV Unpacked tours - which saw professionally performed productions of Spring Awakening and She Ventures and He Wins performed in community venues in Lambeth and Southwark including prisons, elderly care homes, homeless shelters, and rehabilitation centres - Taking Part will tour Love Reign to similar locations in our local boroughs where theatre is not usually performed, from 4 -15 October.

The show will then be performed in our Maria theatre from 18 - 23 October.

This year marks the first time Taking Part has toured an original piece of work as part of YV Unpacked, making work for new audiences that puts them at the centre.

Love Reign, written by Shereen Jasmin Phillips and directed by Stef O'Driscoll, is an eclectic piece of new writing that centres on a fusion of narrative & music to create a live storytelling experience.

At its core Love Reign is a love letter to friendships, how we begin them, how we honour them and how we preserve them against all odds in our lives.

This exhilarating show encapsulates the joyful expression of friendship delicately underscored by a live soulful house soundtrack.

This is theatre you can vibe to.
