We’ve been overwhelmed by the warm response to our live online events during lockdown – it’s wonderful to be connected to so many of you across the globe, even while we can’t meet face-to-face. So we’re delighted to be announcing another run of Telephone, back by popular demand!
Telephone is a live storytelling performance, with some very gentle (and optional) interaction, and conversations over a drink. Written and performed by Tassos Stevens, it weaves together stories and games about connection across all kinds of distance, through a short and mostly true history of telecommunications.
Not only thematically eloquent in the way it is exploring fragility, connection and distance, but […] also asking questions about what it means to be in a room and play together on Zoom. Coney are pushing at the boundaries of theatre and of technologyLyn Gardner, Stagedoor
We’ll present a run of 6 performances, set to span timezones. (All times are UK time). Performances last around 90 minutes.
Saturday 30 May, 11.30am and 7pm
Saturday 6 June, 11.30am and 7pm
Saturday 13 June, 11.30am and 7pm
Your own home: you’ll need to have access to Zoom to join the Coney Zoom Bar. And bring a drink of your choice too.
How to book
Tickets (one per screen) are available on a Pay What You Can basis, and we recommend booking early as all our online events so far have sold out quickly. We’ll see you in the Zoom bar!
