Tobacco Factory Theatres has announced it will be reopening on Thursday 20 May 2021 – a total of 429 days after the doors were closed due to the global pandemic.
A statement by the theatre says the venue has ‘thoroughly prepared and modified’ the building and made changes to the way it works to ensure audience safety.
Acknowledging that not all vulnerable audience members will be able to return to watch live shows, the statement also says: ‘We’re also aware that it won’t be possible for all of our audiences to return in person just yet, and so we’re continuing to develop ways to share great theatre with you in different forms.’
A variety of shows are currently available to book, some with options allowing audiences to watch from home.
Forthcoming shows include Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory, boomsatsuma, Michael Spicer and an Artist Masterclass from David Mercatali.
Other future productions feature a new one-woman show from Florence Espeut-Nickless with D.E.S.T.I.N.Y..
There will also be music and storytelling from The Devil’s Violin with new show The Beast in Me and Kneehigh performer Bec Applebee with Oh Mary – the tale of Cornish legend Mary Bryant.
