On 17 March 2020, we closed the Donmar Warehouse in response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Our much-loved stage has remained dark ever since – something that has never happened since we opened the doors in 1992.
However, since our closure, we have been committed to supporting our staff, artists and freelancers who rely on us, and creatively and successfully finding ways to bring our work and participation projects to our audiences and communities.
Now, as we look to the future, to reopening our doors once again with an exciting new season, we need your support more than ever. We have undergone some essential maintenance works to make our space more accessible, with state-of-the-art ventilation, improved environmental sustainability, and with more welcoming and inclusive front of house spaces. As a charity receiving only a tiny fraction of our income from public funding, we now rely more than ever before on the generosity of supporters and audiences to deliver much loved productions; work with thousands of young people and communities each year; develop industry leading artists, and to nurture the next generation of theatre lovers.
To continue with this vital work, we need your help. We have launched our DONMAR RESTART APPEAL to raise funds so we can reopen in the best shape possible. Take a Seat is one way of helping us. It’s your opportunity to name a seat in our iconic auditorium and our friend, Eddie Redmayne, is leading the way by adding his own name to one of our seats. If you would like to do the same, please get in touch or click here to find out more.
