The New Diorama Theatre in central London has announced that it plans to remain closed until 2021.

The theatre said yesterday that: "since lockdown began, we've gifted two-thirds of our reserves to artists through no-strings attached grants, ensuring that when we come back we've still got theatre to fill our stage".

Like so many other spaces across the UK, the theatre is having to close its doors while uncertainty remains about when exactly performances may be able to commence again without social distancing.

The venue has also committed to paying freelancers and cast members throughout the pandemic. A vital platform for hundreds of emerging artists creating some of the most commended contemporary work of the last decade, a number of companies have written tributes to the theatre while it remains closed.
