Just days before the planned performance, Chesil Theatre Winchester, in the light of the latest government announcement, has had to reschedule broadcasting of Two by Jim Cartwright to a later date,
This production will be the first in a live streaming project Chesil Theatre@Home where a show is brought direct from the theatre to the audience at home exactly as it is happening. Chairman David Small said: “Chesil Theatre has thrived on live performance and it’s our intention, all things permitting, to come back as soon as possible once the current lockdown ends. We have pencilled in Saturday 5th December. We realise this date might not be convenient for everyone who has already booked and enquiries for refunds can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org. ”
In the meantime, the tension mounts as members of the judging panel for TakeTen, Chesil Theatre’s New Writing Festival, are about to reach their final decisions on the winning ten plays. Earlier in the year over 400 scripts were entered in the competition for 10-minute plays on this year’s theme of The Road Not Taken. The plays are scheduled to be performed in Spring 2021.
