Curated by producer James Seabright, the shows were filmed in front of socially distanced audiences at Wilton's Music Hall. They will be available across specific dates beginning on the 1 July on new platform stream.theatre.
Seabright explains: "Thanks to a grant from the Cultural Recovery Fund we were able to give work to dozens of freelance actors, creatives and technicians, to record these wonderful productions and now present them to a global audience via stream.theatre."
The four shows are hit musical A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad) penned by Jon Brittain with music by Matthew Floyd Jones (streaming from 1 to 4 July and then available on-demand to 11 July), Black is the Color of My Voice, penned by Apphia Campbell and inspired by the life of Nina Simone (streaming from 8 to 11 July with on-demand access from 12 to 19 July), Brendan Murphy's Friend (The One With Gunther) (streaming from 15 to 18 July with on-demand access from 19 to 25 July) and finally Mark Farrelly's Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope, inspired by the life of the iconic English writer and raconteur (streaming from 22 to 25 July with on-demand access from 26 July to 1 August).
