Fantastic free shows to enjoy from home

Hello lovely Strike A Light friends – hope you’re all OK. We miss seeing you! 😭

But while lockdown is in effect, we still want to find ways to share in amazing experiences with you. So here’s a quick selection of a few fantastic, free shows that you can enjoy from home this week:

In Loco Parentis
Date: Thurs 9 April (tomorrow!)
Location: streaming online – Pavillion Dance South West
Tickets: free! (Or optional donation)
Age recommendation: 14+

“Agonisingly visceral, and often beyond words… this is also a piece about love as an enduring source of hope” The Psychologist

We’ve partnered with our friends at Pavillion Dance South West (PDSW) to try out sharing dance performances online. This one is a serious, hard-hitting piece: a powerfully brutal and honest examination of the care system. In Loco Parentis explores what it’s like to grow up in care. What happens to young people when their parents can’t look after them?

You can join the live screening from 7.30pm tomorrow. More details on the PDSW site: https://www.pdsw.org.uk/whats-on/in-loco-parentis/


Jane Eyre
Date: 9-16 April
Location: streaming online – National Theatre
Tickets: free!

Every Thursday, the National Theatre are making full shows available to watch online for free, for a limited time. This coming week is Jane Eyre – a co-production with Bristol Old Vic, which we loved when we saw it in Bristol (back when things like that were allowed!)
