Summer Season 2021

You’ve waited so long to see theatre again, at CPT and elsewhere. You’ve missed it, and can’t wait to get back to it. So: it’d better be good.

It’s good.

Come join us for our suck-it-and-see summer season: eight weeks of absolutely banging theatre and performance, in a new building and in a new post-pandemic (we hope…) world. We are ecstatic to welcome you back, and can promise you sensational entertainment, from CPT favourites like In Bed With My Brother and Will Dickie, and blazing newcomers like Georgie Jones, Rhys Hollis and MisSa Blue.

We’ve got music about mortality and dancing about privilege. We’ve got drag kings, sword swallowers and Greek myths queered. And we’ve got the UK’s pre-eminent festival of feminism, Calm Down, Dear, featuring three weeks of in-yer-face, anti-sexist performance.

Come join us. We can promise you a warm (Covid-secure!) welcome and all the thrills that come when a season’s worth of stellar artists, reined in for fifteen months, are finally unleashed.
