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.

Show details


July 20, 1969.

On the night of the moon landing, Chicago housewife Diana (Wendi Peters) walks out of her comfortable suburban life for no real reason.

She sees the astronauts taking that great step and is struck by the realisation that some people lead exciting lives.

Suddenly alone in a fast-changing world, she finds a series of unexpected encounters can turn one small step into a giant, life-changing leap.

Background, advisory warnings

Age suitability: Not available

This is an in-person performance running for four weeks, and there is also one designated live-streamed performance on Friday 7th May.

Southwark Playhouse are selling tickets for live, in-person socially distanced performances of You Are Here in the hope that live performances will be able to go ahead at this point.

If government guidance does not allow for live performances to go ahead with social distancing then performances of You Are Here will be live-streamed and ticket holders will be contacted with details on how to watch the alternative production online or obtain a refund.
