However, everything quickly falls apart and turns into the biggest theatrical catastrophe. From the set falling apart to sudden cast members falling ill, everything that can go wrong, does go wrong. It’s so disastrous that its nothing short of genius. You’re guaranteed to be in for side-splitting laughter from start to finish.

How the West End is getting Covid-secure

Now that theatres are in stage four of reopening, that means that indoor performances are allowed but there are guidelines to meet and social distancing is one of them. The select few theatres that are able to open with these restrictions have set in place social distancing. The seating will be sorted so that parties will sit in their bubbles. Hand sanitiser stations will be placed throughout the venue and audiences and Front of House staff will be required to wear a face mask.

There will be temperature checks and track and trace measures in place, as well as contactless payments methods. There will also be deep theatre cleanings in between performances.
