Watch a play online and join in a discussion afterwards
The next Play Away matinée will be on Saturday April 24th at 3.00. Log in via Zoom here.
You are all warmly invited to an afternoon at the online theatre with the Tower’s next Play Away event. We will be watching and discussing User not Found devised and performed by theatre company Dante or Die. Initially performed live in cafés with the audience following the action on a bespoke smartphone app it was then transferred online during lockdown. The play will be introduced by our guest host John Chapman who will also lead the post performance discussion.
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!
