We are following government guidelines on social distancing – everyone wears face masks backstage throughout our building, we have behind the scenes one-way systems and there is additional cleaning taking place in the areas of the building in use.

Some of our actors are living in household bubbles together, which means they don’t need to stay two metres apart and can come into close contact with each other. Only actors who live in the same household will be doing this – everyone else will be social distancing when on and off stage.
