HAMPSTEAD THEATRE TO LIVE STREAM TIGER COUNTRY – 17/01/15 7:30PM
If you fancy a theatre night tonight, for whatever reason can’t make it out, then you’re in luck. Hampstead Theatre, in association with The Telegraph, will live stream tonight’s performance of Tiger Country, the last performance of the popular NHS drama.
Covering one of the hottest political topics of the moment, Tiger Country, written and directed by Nina Raine, is an insight into the working of the NHS and the people who keep it going. Professionalism and prejudice, turbulent staff romances, ambition and failure merge in an action-packed and astute drama about a service we all depend on.
Free Streamed worldwide on the final night, Saturday 17 January at 7.30pm at hampsteadtheatre.com and at telegraph.co.uk/culture/theatre. An on demand version of the Tiger Country Free Stream will then be available to watch for free on demand for 72 hours immediately after the live event on Hampstead Theatre and The Telegraph’s website. Viewers can interact via twitter and facebook throughout the live-streaming using #TigerCountryLiveStream. Follow @Hamps_Theatre and @TeleTheatre to join the conversation and live commentary.
Indira Varma leads a cast of Ruth Everett, Souad Faress, Jenny Galloway, Nick Hendrix, Maxwell Hutcheon, Tricia Kelly, Alastair MacKenzie, Wunmi Mosaku, Shaun Parkes and Luke Thompson.
Hampstead Theatre believes in Access for All – with as many people as possible having the opportunity to enjoy free quality theatre wherever they are. The Free Streaming and free to view on demand access to Tiger Country follows Beth Steel’s Wonderland in July 2014 and Howard Brenton’s Drawing The Line in January 2014. In April 2013, Hampstead Theatre was the first theatre to live-stream internationally for free with #Aiww: The Arrest Of Ai Weiwei.
Hampstead Theatre’s Artistic Director Edward Hall commented: “This is the fourth show we have Free Streamed and is central to our belief that Hampstead Theatre productions should be accessible to people all over the UK and the rest of the world. Hampstead’s previous Free Streams have attracted over 50,000 views in 86 countries demonstrating that with the right sponsorship and media partnerships, it is possible to bring the best of British theatre to a truly global audience. Nina Raine’s play is an accomplished glimpse into the realities of working in the modern NHS. Meticulously researched and brilliantly delivered – I hope wherever you are, you enjoy it”
