Palace Theatre announces first streamed show in lockdown

Posted onPosted on 19th Mar

Mansfield Palace Theatre has announced its first streamed performance, Dalloway, a one-woman drama produced by Dyad Productions.

It was recorded in front of a a live audience in August 2019 as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Performed by Rebecca Vaughan, Dalloway is set in 1923 and conjures the hopes and regrets of post-war London, offering a feminist response to the aftermath of the First World War.

It will be streamed on Thursday, 25th March at 8pm. A household ticket costs £5.

Sian Booth, cultural services manager, said: “We’re so thrilled to be able to bring our audiences streamed entertainment, direct to their homes.

“It’s a real step forward for the theatre and we hope that people will give it a go, even if it’s their first drama, which is why we have kept the price low at just a fiver”.

Written and directed by Elton Townend Jones, Dalloway sees Clarissa Dalloway preparing a party in Westminster, while Septimus Smith is diagnosed with shell-shock. Their memories and dreams magically intertwined with those of 15 other disparate souls on a hot blue day in June.

The recorded performance is being streamed using a virtual reality format, which means that viewers can use the mouse or trackpad on their device to move around the stage, zoom in and out, and get close to the action.
