Hampstead shows Maisie Williams in I And You free on Instagram

It’s not often you’re encouraged to get your phone out before a performance begins. But in a ground-breaking initiative by the Hampstead Theatre, in association with picture-powered social network Instagram, you’ll be able to use it to catch the likes of Maisie Williams in acclaimed play I And You, streamed for free on IGTV.

Specially performed, filmed and edited for the portrait orientation-only medium, I And You will be available to watch on demand for 72 hours from 6pm on Friday 30 November until 6pm on Monday 3 December.

The full production will be available to view when you follow the play’s venue @hampstead_theatre, its stars – @maisie_williams and @zachwwyatt (Zach Wyatt) – or its playwright @lalatellsastory (Lauren Gunderson). It will be visible on their respective IGTV channels.

I And You is the witty and fulfilling story of youth and living life to the max. Housebound and confined to her room because of illness, Caroline (Williams) hasn’t been to school in months. But the unexpected arrival of classmate Anthony yields a bond which strikes an unlikely but life-changing friendship.

The show marks the stage debut of Game Of Thrones star Williams, and the professional debut of recent Guildhall graduate Wyatt.

Its free online presentation is part of the Hampstead Theatre’s Access for All programme, which seeks to provide access to quality theatre to as many audiences as possible.

Gunderson said of the announcement: “I’m truly overjoyed that this definitive production of my play I And You will be shown for free on Instagram. The more theatre we can offer people the better, and this is such a fresh and easy way to give millions of people a unique theatre experience…

“I myself will be watching from home in San Francisco with my kids and cat, and cannot wait to share Maisie Williams and Zach Wyatt’s incredible performances up close with the world.”

And whilst you’re at it, why not follow Official London Theatre on Instagram, for a unique combination of backstage fun, features and previews?

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk. If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
