Play Away

Watch a play online and join in a discussion afterwards

The next Play Away matinée will be on Saturday June 26th at 2.30. Details of the play chosen will be posted here nearer the time.

You are all warmly invited to an afternoon at the online theatre with the Tower’s monthly Play Away event.
We start at 2.30pm on Zoom with a brief introduction to the show and performers. After the show we meet again on Zoom to discuss the show. We expect the event to finish about 4.30 – what better way to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon?

We’ve all got used to watching plays online at home but do you miss the chance to chat about the play afterwards? Why did the Director decide to set Macbeth in a prison…how did they achieve that lighting effect … was that performance daring and outrageous – or just misguided … ?!

One of the things we love about theatre is the communal audience experience. Now you can recreate that with our Play Away Saturday matinées. Every month we will watch a play online followed by a Zoom discussion. There’ll be a brief introduction to the play at the start and plenty of time for chat afterwards, hosted by one of our guest facilitators who will get the discussion started. Then all you need to do is settle down with your refreshment of choice and join us for some delightful theatre chat!
