Just about every city and town in Britain has a theatre, either producing its own shows (some of which later come to London) or hosting touring productions, often of recent London hits.

In addition, many shows that begin in London also tour the country, sometimes while the original is still running. If a touring production plays a city you're in, check our current drama, comedy or musical listings, or our archive of past shows, to see our review of the London version. (Be aware that in many cases the touring show will have a different cast.)

In August 2016 we reviewed 100 shows at the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe, traditionally the beginning of the touring year. Almost everything we reviewed will tour through 2016 and 2017, many shows coming to London. So browse our coverage for a preview of the year or a review of something playing near you.
