Theatre by the Lake in Keswick is teaming up with Wise Children to support their live broadcast of Romantics Anonymous.
Wise Children, Bristol Old Vic and Plush Theatricals announced that Emma Rice’s critically-acclaimed musical adaptation of Romantics Anonymous will be performed at Bristol Old Vic, and broadcast live, direct to audience’s homes nationally and globally.
The show will be available to stream as a ‘digital tour’ between Tue 22 and Sat 26 September, following the cancellation of its US tour due to Covid-19. In a wonderful act of industry solidarity, partner theatres across the world will sell tickets for different nights of the week. Each night will be tailored to audiences in different parts of the world, and there’ll be a sprinkle of local flavour added before each stream begins. Theatre by the Lake’s broadcast as part of Scotland and the North’s performance is on Tue 22 September at 7.30pm.
