We may have had to temporarily close our doors but if you’re looking for your theatre fix there are a host of theatre companies and artists providing their work for free online.
Our very own Homemakers will be launch very soon but in the meantime here’s a comprehensive list of theatre productions you can watch online for free.
We’ll also be adding to this list as more content becomes available.
Our friends at the Royal Court bring their acclaimed production Cyprus Avenue to the small screen for World Theatre Day. The film is available on Friday 27 March from 12pm on YouTube and will be online for one month. Please note this production is 18+
The Time of Your Life
If you enjoyed Gecko’s a little space earlier this year then check out the company’s 2015 show The Time of Your Life filmed for the BBC. It follows an ordinary man desperate to make human interaction in a digital world. I think we can all relate right now.
Kieran Hurley’s new play is an online theatre performance by eight actors in different countries who have never met. It’s explosive, experimental and a timely piece of theatre.
It’s True, It’s True, It’s True
This stark award-winning production visited HOME back in 2019 and will be broadcast online on Tuesday 31 March at 7.30pm. We’ll be posting the link on here on Tuesday.
Emma Rice’s exuberant adaptation production visited HOME in 2019 and will be shown as part of the BBC’s new Culture in Quarantine initiative.
Other theatre we love
I and You
Maisie Williams and Zach Wyatt star in the Hampstead Theatre production of I and You, which was originally broadcast to Instagram’s IGTV during the run. This is back online only until Sunday 29 March. Watch the full production by following @hampstead_theatre on Instagram.
Since U Been Gone
Teddy Lamb’s latest production has been postponed due to the outbreak so as a treat he’s added a stream of his hit 2019 Edinburgh show Since U Been Gone to YouTube.
Looking for something to get you moving? BalletBoyz’ latest show Deluxe was cut short so from Friday 27 March at 7.30pm they will be live streaming the show in full here. But that’s not all. You’re also invited to take part in their live online ballet lessons.

This is a difficult time, and we appreciate everyone who has asked how they can help. If you are receiving a refund due to cancellation of a show, please consider being one of the many people who have turned this refund into a donation, if you can afford to do so. And please do add Gift Aid if you can – this means we can claim 25% more, without any additional cost to you.
