Extinct (online)

What drives a person to rebel? What is the journey a citizen has to take before they decide to disobey the laws of their own country? From psychiatrists to vicars, classroom assistants to actors - What is their story? Walk in their steps and find out.

April De Angelis (The VillagePlayhouse Creatures) takes on the climate emergency in this tapestry of testimonials from members of the Extinction Rebellion community.

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, in June and July this year we're making our productions 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.


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. If you'd usually go for top-price tickets or are watching as a group then we'd recommend our OVATION (£32) or ENCORE tickets (£20). We also have our APPLAUSE tickets (£10) available. 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.

Streaming Ticket Options, Applause £10, Encore £20, Ovation £32
