Matt Smith and Claire Foy to perform Lungs (plus 5 plays that could have the same social distance treatment)
The Old Vic has announced that Matt Smith and Claire Foy will be doing a socially distanced version of the play Lungs which will be filmed at the theatre and live-streamed.
It will be ticketed and numbers limited to 1,000 per performance so there is an element of exclusivity to it.
Dates have yet to be announced but check out the Old Vic website for more details and how to sign up for email updates. I missed it the first time around so I'll certainly be trying to grab a ticket.
Lungs will kick off what the Old Vic is calling In Camera, a series of rehearsed readings shot at the theatre against the empty auditorium and streamed online.
It is a fantastic way of bringing live performance to theatre lovers but also raising much-needed funds.
And while streaming archive productions has been brilliant - and will continue to be so, I'm sure this will just be the start of similar innovations to keep theatres going with fresh performances.
