Theatre bosses have moved to reassure the community and said measures had been taken to reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus at the venue.
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.
“A night of comedy may be more needed now than it has ever been.”
Standard tickets to the performance cost £12.50 and can be purchased at The Cut’s website.
