The cast of Watching Rosie

Miriam Margolyes, Amit Shah and Louise Coulthard

Watching Rosie starring Miriam Margolyes and Amit Shah to be re-released online from 12 November

Published 11 November 2020

Due to the phenomenal success of its first venture, Original Theatre Companys specially commissioned online short play Watching Rosie by Louise Coulthard will be re-released from 12 – 26 November 2020, alongside an accompanying new online play Mrs Goldie vs The World, written and performed by Nicky Goldie (Call the Midwife, The Queens Gambit, Doctors, Coronation Street).

Watching Rosie is based on Coulthards debut play, Cockamamy, which won the Lustrum Award for Outstanding New Play at The Edinburgh Fringe 2017 and stars BAFTA-winning actress Miriam Margolyes (Yentl, Little Shop of Horrors, Scorsese’s The Age of Innocence, Being Julia Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows (part II) and Ladies in Lavender), Amit Shah (The Other One, The Witcher, His Dark Materials) and Louise Coulthard (The Night Watch, The Importance of Being Earnest).

Watching Rosie is a tender portrayal of experiencing dementia in lockdown and the power of love to overcome it. This heartbreaking and hilarious film highlights the incredible bond between Alice (Miriam Margolyes) and her granddaughter Rosie (Louise Coulthard) as they face change, confusion and an unexpected arrival from Tesco.

Mrs Goldie vs The World is a funny and affectionate celebration of a tempestuous relationship between a mother and a daughter, each as stubborn as the other. Nicky Goldie’s witty and heartfelt anecdotes promise to resonate with anyone who has elderly care responsibilities, especially during a global pandemic. Directed by Charlotte Peters (Birdsong Online, Apollo 13: The Dark Side of the Moon) and performed by Nicky Goldie, in the midst of cooking lockdown lunch.

Watching Rosie and Mrs Goldie vs The World will be released free-of-charge at 10am on Thursday 12 November at OriginalTheatreOnline.com and will be available until 26 November.

Donations for Watching Rosie are encouraged in support of Dementia UK and donations for Mrs Goldie vs The World are welcome in support of Carers Trust. Find out more below!

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.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

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.
