Live theatre will return to The Cut in Halesworth next month.
The first live show to be held since lockdown will see community theatre company Open Space present Anton Chekhov’s comic masterpiece, The Bear.
The Cut has been successfully running cinema events on Wednesday evenings and the building and staff are used to socially distanced audiences.
But this will be the first theatre performance since lockdown – and they’re looking forward to seeing the building used for live events.
David Green, Open Space artistic director, said: “We’re keen to demonstrate that live theatre is possible, and can be acceptably safe.
“We hope audiences will feel comfortable and safe in coming back to the theatre and we wanted to support venues.”
The Bear is a one act comedy that visits The Cut on Friday, November 13 and Saturday, November 14 at 7.30pm.
The show will last an hour with no interval.
Tickets cost £12/£9.50, with booking essential via www.newcut.org/events
