Greenwich Theatre has announced it's long-awaited reopening, with a trio of revived works opening in June.

Officially emerging from a year of closure forced by the pandemic, the theatre has excitedly revealed a trio of "short and unforgettable plays" from Caryl Churchill, one of the country's most prominent playwrights.

The Government's roadmap means theatres will be allowed to open in some capacity from May 17, but full capacity crowds and full reopenings will have to wait until June 21.

Greenwich Theatre has decided to wait, with the plays opening on June 23, and running through until July 10.

Its first in-house production since December, the theatre says it will adhere to ongoing government guidance, which could include social distancing required for indoor performances.

Artistic Director James Haddrell commented: "We are delighted to be emerging from the last year of closure with this special collection of short plays.

"Caryl Churchill is undoubtedly one of the most important British playwrights of the past half century, and thanks to support from Arts Council England I am excited to be able to share some of her earliest, most rarely performed work."

Bad Nights and Odd Days will see three short plays, Abortive, Seagulls, and Three More Sleepless Nights.

Led by acclaimed actor Paul McGann, Churchill's earlier work will be brought to life for the limited season, with further casting to be announced in due course.

Haddrell added: "With special permission from Churchill herself to bring the pieces together under the title Bad Nights and Odd Days, I know that this collection of intimate, quietly heart-stopping dramas will offer a powerful, moving evening of live theatre - the kind of evening that we have all been missing so much."

While venues have sporadically been able to open for short periods of time in different parts of the country, no shows have been able to run for an extended period since March 2020.
