Dear theatre friends,
Another late bit of theatre news:
In Edinburgh, I was delighted to see the work of two funny, insightful women– despite being vaguely dissuaded by the name of their company, Sh!t Theatre.. Several years ago, they explored London’s housing crisis in their messy, highly original way– “Letters to Windsor House.” Now, until the 20th, you can see this Fringe First Winner for a small donation.
While on the Show and Tell Theatre site, you may want to view a couple of other Fringe-worthy shows. They, too, are raising money for important causes with ticket sales.
A few have asked if I have any inside information about National Theatre’s Live at Home future programming schedule. I haven’t. However these last two plays are not-to-be-missed!! Both “The Deep Blue Sea,” on until this Thursday, the 16th, and “Amadeus,” which starts the 16th for a week, are among the very finest the National has put on. I will remember them long after this plague has ended.
That’s all for now– as I receive news I’ll pass it along. But don’t completely fill your calendars yet– more shows are continuing to find their way to our screens.
Aren’t we fortunate to be living during this plague and not Sophocles’? Or, are you overwhelmed by choice?
Again, if you discover other theatre-related news– please get in touch: Carol@BestofEdinburgh.org.
And, need I reiterate? I’d like to continue to write because so many have expressed their enjoyment of reading– but I must have content!
Please send other theatre related information, or do try to recall a story you’d like me to post.
