Jury by Martin Murphy Streaming Online
17 August 2020
For 10 weeks during lockdown, Park Theatre Company - Script Class worked together as an online theatre company with director Amy Allen to virtually stage Jury, a brand new play by Martin Murphy (Bruised Sky), premiering at 7pm Wed 19 Aug.
Whilst the world grinds to a halt during the Coronavirus pandemic, the beleaguered justice system trials a digital solution aimed at tackling their backlog of court cases. The jury of a high-profile case are logging on to Zoom – and they have just 45 minutes to reach a verdict.
A comedy-drama about the ‘new normal’, a world where we the jury not only discuss the crucial details of when the complementary sandwiches will be delivered, how to hide your lockdown G&T in a coffee mug, and of course, how to turn your camera on - but also tackle a gripping, complex and polarising case.
An inside look into the bedrooms, offices and living rooms where justice is passionately, vehemently, being served.
We'll be streaming Jury via our YouTube channel for a limited time only from 19 Aug - 4 Sep. The performance is FREE for everyone online - though if you can make a donation to our Park Life Fund, you will be helping to secure the future of Park Theatre.
Park Theatre Company: Script Class is one of the many adult courses offered as part of Park Theatre's Creative Learning programme. We will be announcing more virtual classes soon for the autumn, so watch this space!
Your support has brought us this far... yet, in the current climate, the future of the theatre remains unclear.
We don’t yet know how the £1.57 billion committed by the government will be allocated, and the social distancing restrictions that are likely to be imposed to allow reopening will impact the number of tickets we can sell and visitors we can welcome.
Fundraising continues through our Park Life campaign and will help us navigate our way towards the day when once again we can safely play to packed houses.
Thanks to all our Park Life donors. Your support is appreciated at this time more than ever.
We’d like to thank The National Lottery Community Fund for their support, for their support in helping us to deliver our creative learning programme digitally during lockdown.
