Extinct (online)

★★★★★ “There’s not a single moment in the show’s 80-minute running length that lets you look away – the story is urgent, gripping and wonderfully crafted.” North West End
★★★★ "As much an engrossingly strong play as it is a call for action... Possibly the most intensely gripping Ted Talk one may ever see" A Younger Theatre
"April De Angelis's dystopic climate drama is a powerful, urgent polemic" The Guardian

A woman stands alone on stage. She has one hour to change our future. One hour to avert a catastrophe. She’ll give everything she has.

April De Angelis’ urgent new play takes on the climate emergency head on using a tapestry of testimonials from environmental activists.


We know that lots of people are eager to get back into theatres and we cannot wait to welcome you back. We also know that some people might not be ready just yet. So, we're making our production of EXTINCT available to stream online. It'll be a different experience from being in our auditorium but we'll guarantee the same high-quality performance along with the best views in the house. This is perfect for anyone shielding or unable to travel to the theatre at the moment. It's also ideal if you just want to be in the comfort of your own home with your own snacks!


You can watch EXTINCT online with captions, audio description, BSL interpretation or without. Please make sure you book a ticket for the specific type of performance you require.


Please note that you can purchase tickets up to one hour before the start of the stream. Our streaming tickets are sold via TicketCo. You will be taken to a new page when you select 'Book'. When adding tickets to your basked on TicketCo, you will be asked to log in to your Stratford East account, or 'Sign Up' to create a Stratford East account.


PRICING
We've kept our streaming ticket prices at the same levels as our in-person tickets and whilst all streamed versions offer the same view, we encourage audiences to support our work by buying the ticket that they can afford.

We're incredibly grateful to anyone who can support us at this time so we can continue working with artists, young people and our local community.
