The Lockdown Luvvies

Hits: 474

A group of long-standing BTC actors and directors have made some short videos for you to watch whilst the theatre remains closed. So, who exactly is the Lockdown Luvvies?

Chief luvvie, Karen Peters-Parker explains….

During the summer, a small group of us theatre luvvies, Fleur Buckley, Margaret Glenn, Phil Cohen, Lorna Thomas and myself, met for a socially distanced get-together in the garden of the theatre. It was here, whilst imbibing a few glasses of Pimms and the odd glass or two of vino, that the notion of filming some monologues to share with our members came about.

The last of our monologues is now nearing completion and then we’ll be releasing one per week over the next five weeks so please do return to the website regularly to see what we are presenting each week. Well let you know on Facebook when there is a new video posted but we’ll leave the content and the running order as a little surprise. However, if you do want more information, then make sure you are on the mailing list for our newsletter. You can sign up at the bottom of this – or any – webpage.

We hope you enjoy watching our lockdown efforts and that they’ll help to keep you in touch with the theatre until we can welcome our audiences back once again. And if you do enjoy them, please let us know and we will try to bring you other performances before the end of the year. Just drop us a line via the Contact Us page on this website.

And now please click on the link below to enjoy the videos!
