This show which may offer a glimpse the future of theatre: it will be following a hybrid model allowing for some people to see the show in person and others to watch it live-streamed. This staging of Sarah Kane’s play at Chichester Festival Theatre on the South coast stars Erin Doherty, Alfred Enough, Wendy Kweh and Jonathan Slinger. Tinuke Craig’s revival of a poetic play about the joys and wounding slings and arrows of love should be well worth seeing and you can pick whether you want to travel or see it from the sofa. It’s a nice choice to have.
"Here I am, once again, here I am, here I am, in the darkness, once again" In a damaged world, four characters search for the light. Angry, funny, defiant, kind and cruel, Crave is a deeply personal meditation on the meaning of love. Pulsing with loss and longing, its resonance will be doubly powerful as we begin to reconnect our lives after the loneliness and seclusion inflicted by a global pandemic. Originally due to play in the Spielgeltent this autumn, Crave will be staged to a live, socially distanced audience in the Festival Theatre and – in a first for Chichester – simultaneously live-streamed to global digital audiences.
