The Kiln Theatre cancels premiere of A Museum in Baghdad

London's Kiln Theatre has been forced to make the difficult decision to cancel its upcoming new production of A Museum in Baghdad due to COVID-19. It is unclear at this time whether Hannah Khalil's play produced by Royal Shakespeare Company will run at the venue at a later date. All ticketholders will be contacted by their point-of-sale for refunds.

A statement by the venue was released: "Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the implications for all theatres, Kiln Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company regret that it has become necessary to cancel the London run of Hannah Khalil's A Museum in Baghdad which was scheduled to take place 22 April - 23 May 2020."

The Kiln Theatre and Cinema are now closed indefinitely until further notice. Recently the Kiln Theatre issued a series of tweets showing their support for other non-commercial venues, including the Theatre Royal Stratford East, Unicorn Theatre, Young Vic, Yard Theatre, and more.
