Because the battle in opposition to COVID-19 continues to rage, the plight of Britain’s theaters, which have suffered catastrophic monetary pressure due to lockdown, continues to rumble by means of the humanities world. Theaters have been compelled to shut on the finish of March and, with few exceptions, have remained closed since. These venues should determine whether or not reopening when the most recent lockdown eases can be viable, due to the very actual prospect of constant social distancing measures which make stay efficiency nearly unattainable.

Even after the UK got here all too briefly out of lockdown in the summertime, ticket gross sales have been restricted and income down. Now, with a second lockdown in power and Christmas exhibits threatened, the way forward for British theater stays extremely questionable.
