ZOOM! A Play for Lockdown
by Tess Townsend & Marie-Jose Zuurbier
This short performance takes the format of a play-within-a-play, and we watch as the troupe, presided over by the patient John (aka Fairy King) undertake rehearsals for their play over Zoom. It’s a clever plot device, allowing the viewer a glimpse into the inner lives of the characters, whilst the play they’re rehearsing drives the plot. The characters we meet are caricatures of the different ways many of us have tried to cope with lockdown; there’s exercise-obsessed Fatima, Tristram the inspired baker, and Tams, who appears in varying levels of PPE as the play progresses. Plus, there are subtle digs at the petty rivalries within am-dram groups, which are very funny to watch.
The production will take the form of a recorded video, which we will make available online for free.
