The Crown's Emma Corrin has landed a lead role in a new West End play and tickets to see it are available to buy from today.

Emma Corrin will star alongside Industry's Nabhaan Rizwan and, as two of TV's rising stars, they're coming together for the new play as theatres start to reopen again.

The duo will star in a new play called Anna X at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London this summer, with strict social distancing measures in place designed to keep audiences and staff as safe as possible, while allowing theatres to start hosting live events.

Anna X stars Emma as Anna and Nabhaan as Ariel, and both are making their West End debuts in Joseph Charlton's tale studying the whirlwind lives of New York City's social elite – and the versions of ourselves that we present to others.

Tickets for Anna X

The play lasts for 1 hour and 40 minutes and is only running for a limited period – between Saturday 10 July and Wednesday 4 August - as part of the Re:Emerge season. Ticket prices start from £10, with at least 600 tickets per week priced at £15 or less.

Tickets to see Emma and Nabhaan in Anna X went on sale via ATG at 10am this morning (16 April), and there are a few important things that you'll need to know ahead of time so that everyone is able to enjoy the show safely.

Firstly, you can book tickets as a household or a support bubble, of up to five people. You'll be given an arrival time and door number on your e-ticket, to best enable social distancing. The theatre's also asking everyone to be mindful of other guests' personal space when moving around the venue.

If you're unable to make it to the performance as planned (for example, if you're ill or have to self-isolate), then you can request to exchange your tickets for another performance, subject to availability, or take up the option of a credit voucher.

All shows will observe social distancing guidelines as recommended by the government at the time the performances take place. As things currently stand, this means that guests will have a contact-free temperature check as a condition of entry, and you will need to wear a face covering in line with government guidelines, unless exempt. (Theatre staff will be wearing personal protective equipment, too.)

Theatregoers are being encouraged to use the NHS test and trace apps (you've probably seen QR codes outside other public venues like shops, bars and restaurants) to check in to the venue.

There will also be contact-free payment, plus in-seat refreshment orders via a special app, and sanitizer stations around the theatre. More info on the Harold Pinter Theatre's safety measures is available here.

The Society of London Theatre and UK Theatre has developed an industry-wide standard called See It Safely as theatres begin to reopen. It's published a list of venues approved under that scheme here.

Finally, so that audiences who aren't yet able to attend the theatre (or who don't yet feel comfortable doing so) can enjoy the Re:Emerge shows, there are plans in place to film a performance of Anna X for broadcast – as well as the other shows in the run, Walden (starring Gemma Arterton and I May Destroy You's Fehinte Balogun) and J'Ouvert (starring Gabrielle Brooks, soon to be seen in Netflix's new fantasy drama Shadow and Bone). Further details will follow in due course.
