The show will be streamed on Zoom starting Thursday 9 September at 7:30 and continue for the next six Thursday nights.
To be clear, this is a table-read type event. Really hard to do much else in quarantine. Our aim with Lockdown Theatre is to bring the community together and do something fun online. Because of this, access to these events will be donation-based.
