The Original Theatre Company’s productions of Alan Bennett’s The Habit Of Art, starring Matthew Kelly, and Ali Milles’s The Croft, both of which were touring the UK, are now online and will then be available to watch online until 28 June 2020.
The performances are available to watch for a donation at www.originaltheatreonline.com
The Original Theatre Company operates with no Arts Council support and relies solely on box office takings. The company is determined, wherever possible, to meet financial commitments made to actors, stage managers and suppliers who are all dependent on the company to survive the coming months. They therefore ask people pay what they can afford but have a suggested minimum donation of £2.50.
Every penny they make through this online release will go to the people who helped make these shows and who now find themselves in a hugely precarious financial position. People in exceptional financial difficulties can access the videos for free by emailing directly the Original Theatre Company.
In addition to the show, there will also be access to a programme and backstage videos as part of the package.
