From 1 September, the Abbey Theatre will be open again after a year of Covid restrictions. We look forward to welcoming more people back to performances and we have an exciting programme on offer.

There are still a few precautions to observe for your own safety and that of others. In accordance with government and scientific advice, we strongly encourage you to wear a face covering at all times while in the theatre, unless you are actually eating or drinking. Respiratory viruses, including Covid-19 are most easily spread by aerosol particles so face coverings offer some protection for you and for others.

For most performances, seats will be on sale in every row, but groups will be separated by one seat. In the Studio, the flexible layout will take this into consideration. There will also be one socially-distanced performance for each Company of Ten production, with alternate rows on sale for those who are still anxious about being in crowded spaces. At these performances, it will be mandatory to wear a face covering.

Our cleaning regime will continue to be thorough, and touch points will be wiped down with anti-viral spray regularly, including before, during and after each performance.
