This weekend you have a 48-hour chance to watch MR THEATRE COMES HOME DIFFERENT by Pulitzer-nominated playwright, Will Eno. This film has been made to raise money for the Theatre Artists Fund. Only available on paus.
‘Give yourselves a big hand. You were lovely.’
Filmed over two days on the main stage of the Lyric Hammersmith London in May 2021, Mr Theatre is a mercurial, bitter-sweet rhapsody on the nature of performance. A funny and moving glimpse behind the safety curtain. Witness the love scene, the storm scene, the inevitable death scene and remember, it’s all only pretend.
Mr Theatre Comes Home Different celebrates all those who work in the theatre – who have been unable to work since March 2020 – and has been made in support of the Theatre Artists Fund.
Will Eno, a Pulitzer-nominated playwright, has adapted his original monologue for twelve actors.
The cast features actors from all across the industry including, Samantha Womack (Eastenders, Kingsman, Silent Witness), Shelley King (Coronation Street), Milo Twomey (A Discovery of Witches), Jonathan Livingstone (Pls Like, The Witches, Chewing Gum), Saffron Coomber (Small Axe, Strike), Charlotte Arrowsmith (Royal Shakespeare Company) and Jenna Boyd (Come From Away).
The streaming will be available from Sat, 29 May at 7.00pm – Mon, 31 May at 10.00pm BST
The film is free to attend and stream, but if you like what you watch, you can show your appreciation for the project by leaving a tip. 100% of tips received by the filmmaker will be given straight to the Theatre Artists Fund, supporting freelancers in theatre who have been unable to work due to the pandemic. Thanks in advance for all your support.
