Two Metres Apart re-creates the experience of being part of a live audience for the digital age. With proceeds going to Campaign to End Loneliness, the shows are written, rehearsed and performed for a world where life takes place online.
It is a thrilling night of live theatre and music that brings exciting new voices right into people’s homes. It pushes the creative boundaries of digital performance and treats “online” as its own format: like radio, film or stage.
This show was performed live on the 1st of July 2020. Now you can watch it on demand.

Since the first Two Metres Apart in April, Greengage has donated £1,480 to Campaign To End Loneliness. In this third episode, Greengage will again donate 20% of ticket sales to this important charity, in recognition of the mental health burden of social isolation during lockdown and beyond it. The remaining funds are used to cover costs. All artists in Greengage shows are paid for their work.
"Two Metres Apart delivers entertainment, unity and a feeling of being able to come together in a space full of creativity, innovation, and power. And so, Anouka’s words resonate: ‘Be the problem that finds the truth’. ★★★★★ A Younger Theatre
