Last year, all London theatres were forced to stop functioning due to the impending threat of the COVID-19 pandemic. Theatres remained shut for over a year. Even iconic shows like the Mousetrap and the Woman in Black that have been staged thousands of times on various West End stages were forced to stop production. Some London theatres did briefly functioned towards the end of the year. However, it did not remain so for long. The steady rise in COVID-19 cases forced the government to call for a nation-wide lockdown, causing theatres to shut down once again - indefinitely.
