3 new plays over 3 days across 3 platforms. Inside. Outside. Online.
Written, performed, produced and managed by members of the Royal Exchange Theatre Young Company, SKRIKED is a theatrical experiment created in response to The Skriker by Caryl Churchill.
Following performances at the theatre and a series of outdoor performances in gardens of Royal Exchange audience members, SKRIKED will be streamed online on MONDAY 27 JULY at 7:30pm.
There are a number of ways to watch:
- On your phone – via PERISCOPE (Look out for links to our live stream feed just before the performance on Monday evening)
“We wanted to explode the notion of what conventional theatre-making is. We’ve created three new pieces that have been performed inside at the theatre and outside in gardens – the next part of the experiment is to investigate whether these plays work with a digital audience. It’s a low tech way to live stream; we wanted to explore ways the Young Company can make and share their own work in a way that they could recreate again away from the theatre. Theatre comes alive with an audience – but will an audience of computers and phones have the same effect? There’s only one way to find out!” Matt Hassall, Young People's Programme Leader
