OFF WEST END
London's Off-West End and Fringe, like New York's Off-Broadway and Off Off-Broadway, ranges from established theatres that just happen to be in different parts of town from the West End, to dozens of small companies and venues, many in pubs, showcasing new talent. Some shows may be on only on weekends or have very short runs, so it is best to check with the theatres (Scroll down for links to some leading Off-West End and fringe theatres).
Be aware that all plans depend on the removal of government restrictions and the health of casts, and are subject to last-minute changes.
