Theatre productions make alterations in light of UK heatwave
An ongoing update on changes and cancellations
The UK is forecast to unprecedented temperatures on Monday and Tuesday, and several shows are making alterations in light of it. We will be updating this article throughout the day...
UPDATE: Punchdrunk's aptly-titled The Burnt City at One Cartridge Place in Woolwich has now cancelled the 19 July performance.
Due to the unprecedented heat we are experiencing, the performance tonight (19 July) has been cancelled. All bookers have been notified via email. Performances for the rest of this week will not be affected.— Punchdrunk (@PunchdrunkInt) July 19, 2022
Six at the Vaudeville Theatre will introduce breaks throughout this evening's performance so that cast members can rehydrate. Stay cool, queens!

The Young Vic has taken the difficult decision to cancel tonight and tomorrow night's performances of Chasing Hares due to "the extreme red weather heat warning and TfL advised restrictions to limit unnecessary travel". All affected patrons will be issued with a refund which will be processed within the next 48 hours, but may take up to ten days.
