Presented by Theatre Together to support artists in the performance industries via charities Acting for Others, Help Musicians, and the Golsoncott Foundation.

Duration: 12 hours. Live-streamed on Facebook 23 April 2020.

What was the viewing experience like? With a different host for each section, this show celebrates the world of cabaret, comedy, dance, magic and theatre.

Variable, as you would expect from a variety of webcams of different qualities. Some pre-recorded films were excellent, and some performers with their monologues and songs came through without any sound or technical issues.

Generally, a brilliant day’s entertainment with artists such as Noah Thomas, Louise Dearman, David Hunter, Tom Milner, Tamaryn Payne, Laura Pick, Bryony Reynolds and The Yes Queens.

Is it worth watching? If you like watching theatre or performance, yes. There are songs, monologues, poems, stand-up (or sit-down) routines, and a lot of charm and commitment, from a range of talented performers.

More importantly, you can donate to performance charities to support performers who have been released from contracts and/or lost their income streams.

Where to watch? Access via Facebook Live. Donate at Theatre Together.
