To my fellow theatre-goers,
I am delighted to announce that Hampstead Theatre, in partnership with The Guardian, will re-release the live stream recordings of Mike Bartlett’s Wild, Beth Steel’s Wonderland and Howard Brenton’s Drawing the Line.
The three productions will be made available to watch on demand and for free over three consecutive weeks on The Guardian and Hampstead websites as part of our Hampstead Theatre at Home series.
Wild, directed by James Macdonald, is available to view now until Sunday 5 April. This darkly comic play explores the unexpected, bewildering, and life-changing consequences of challenging the status quo at a global level, inspired by the Edward Snowden affair.
Wonderland, directed by my predecessor Edward Hall, will be available from Monday 6 April until Sunday 12 April. This extraordinary play, which earned Beth Steel an Evening Standard Award, explores both sides of the story of the Miners' Strike in the 80s.
Drawing the Line, directed by Howard Davies, will be available from Monday 13 April until Sunday 19 April. This beautiful production tells the incredible story of the hapless individual charged with the partition of India in 1947.
Theatre has always sought to bring people together to tell stories that resonate. I am so grateful to the many artists involved for allowing us to share their work once again and to The Guardian for helping us reach as many people as possible during these turbulent times.
We hope to be in touch in the not too distant future with further digital offerings - but in the meantime, thank you for your support, please take care and stay safe.
With warmest wishes,
Roxana Silbert, Artistic Director
