Orange Tree Theatre announces the play titles and full cast for Inside – the first instalment of Inside/Outside, a collection of world premiere short plays by emerging and established writers.
Anna Himali Howard directs Samantha Spiro (Diana) in Guidesky and I by Deborah Bruce, Ishia Bennison (Meg) and Jessica Murrain (Samia) in When the Daffodils by Joel Tan, and Fisayo Akinade (Jay) and Sasha Winslow (Callisto) in Ursa Major by Joe White.
Inside will be performed and livestreamed from the Orange Tree Theatre’s auditorium, 25-27 March.
Inside looks at the lives of three women forgotten by the world, but not by themselves. Outside will be streamed live 15 – 17 April, with further information and casting to be announced.
The Inside/Outside series is curated by OT Literary Associate Guy Jones. Inside/Outside is part of OT On Screen, the Orange Tree Theatre’s digital project launched in January 2020 with Maya Arad Yasur’s play Amsterdam, watched by over 25,000 people worldwide.
The productions, filmed in collaboration with The Umbrella Rooms, mark the company’s first live-streamed project, and the first live performances at the Orange Tree Theatre since lockdown began on 16 March 2020.
The six world premiere plays will be published in a collection by Nick Hern Books on 25 March – pre-order available from their website. Bookers for the livestream will receive an exclusive half-price offer on the published collection.
All rehearsals and filming will be conducted in a Covid secure environment in line with current government guidelines.
