Chichester Festival Theatre is delighted to be partnering with National Theatre Wales, the Royal Court Theatre and Theatre Royal Plymouth for the live stream of our reopening production, Sarah Kane’s Crave.
National Theatre Wales, the Royal Court and Theatre Royal Plymouth will promote the live stream to their audiences, and ticket sales will benefit all the theatres.
Daniel Evans and Kathy Bourne, Artistic and Executive Directors of Chichester Festival Theatre, said: ‘It’s wonderful to be reopening our Theatre, and brilliant that our friends at National Theatre Wales, the Royal Court and Theatre Royal Plymouth have agreed to partner with us to reach even more audiences across the country – taking theatre into their homes while many are unable to travel. Staying connected is even more important at this time, and we’re thrilled and grateful to be able to work together for what promises to be a stunning production.’
Crave will be staged to a live, socially distanced audience in the Festival Theatre and simultaneously live-streamed to global digital audiences. Erin Doherty, Alfred Enoch, Wendy Kweh and Jonathan Slinger are the cast in Tinuke Craig’s production, which will feature a sensory sound and videoscape.
In a damaged world, four characters search for the light. Angry, funny, defiant, kind and cruel, Crave is a deeply personal meditation on the meaning of love. Pulsing with loss and longing, its resonance will be doubly powerful as we begin to reconnect our lives after the loneliness and seclusion inflicted by a global pandemic.
Crave contains strong language and is recommended for ages 16+.
Crave is sponsored by Genesis Town Planning.
