The New Vic are continuing to offer some socially-distanced performances at the theatre during its autumn season of plays.

Putting customer confidence at the heart of the season, there’s at least one socially-distanced performance available per play for those who would feel more comfortable with some extra space during their trip post-lockdown.

Running from Wednesday 20 to Saturday 23 October, a socially-distanced performance will take place on Thursday 21 October at 7.30pm.
