Upcoming productions will include – Romeo and Juliet with Josh O’Connor, Jessie Buckley and Fisayo Akinade; Sea Sick, written and performed by Alanna Mitchell; Hamlet reimagined for younger audiences by Jude Christian and directed by Tinuke Craig, which will tour to state schools across London, before performances in March; Gary Owen’s new play Romeo and Julie, a co-production with Sherman Theatre, with Callum Scott Howells and Rosie Sheehy as Romeo and Julie.

Their NT Live broadcasts in 202 will also include Cyrano De Bergerac with James McAvoy, The Welkin with Maxine Peake, Jack Absolute Flies Again and Romeo & Juliet.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
