Our top 5 tips for theatre in at home this week

As we are all continuing to miss the experience of live theatre here are our top 5 recommendations of what theatre you can watch from home in the coming week.


Emma Rice’s Wise Children was last week’s play discussed at our ReAct Theatre Club for the over 50s. Emma Rice's ebullient theatrical production of Angela Carter's deliciously dark final novel was filmed live at the York Theatre Royal in 2019 and is available to watch on BBC Player.


You can watch the wonderful Rifco theatre's production of Mushy: Lyrically Speaking, the hit production about living with a speech impediment. Watch here. 


On this week’s agenda for our ReAct Theatre club is Barber Shop Chronicles, Inua Ellams' smash-hit play about the places where banter can be barbed, and the truth always is telling. Available to watch on National Theatre Youtube channel until Wednesday.


Deafinitely Theatre, the deaf led theatre company have launched Deafinitely Digital with a selection of their productions available online to watch for free in a mission to make theatre accessible for all. Find out more here. 


Some of our audiences might remember seeing Vanessa Kirby in All my Sons and A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the Octagon’s 2009/10 season. This week watch her and Gillian Anderson in the Young Vic’s smash hit production of Tennessee William’s classic A Streetcar Named Desire available from Thursday (21st May 2020) at 7pm on the National Theatre's Youtube Channel.
