Two Metres Apart is back for the third time with an exciting new programme.

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.

The programme is:

Cole Miller Presents: How to Pitch a Movie Over Zoom, a new short play by Madeline Hendricks (Jane the Virgin, one of six members in IAMA Theater Company’s “Under 30 Playwrights Lab.”). Featuring Vella Lovell (The Big Sick, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) and John Garet Stoker (Code Black, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend). Directed by Stella Powell-Jones

HERSTORY and other poems. Written and performed by Jade Anouka, poet, actor and playwright.

Reunited, a music set about reuniting with friends after a long absence. Performed by Welsh tenor Elgan Llŷr Thomas. Salut! Demeure Chaste et Pure from Faust by Gounod, Somewhere from West Side Story and Tra Bo Dau (Two hearts remain), a Welsh folk song. A mystery 4th piece will be determined by audience vote!

The performance will be hosted by Robin Clyfan.

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.

Critics said:

"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

Two Metres Apart is a collaboration between Greengage and Stella Powell-Jones, formerly Associate Artistic Director of Jermyn Street Theatre.
