Bush Theatre’s ‘Red Pitch’ available online
One of the biggest theatrical successes of this year, Red slot by Tyrell Williams, a fast, sharp and powerful story about gentrification and the impact of this relentless change on London communities had its world premiere at the Bush Theater in February. Once acclaimed by audiences and critics, the production quickly sold out. Now, after being filmed in front of a specially invited audience of local community youth groups, those who missed the opportunity have the opportunity to watch the show online from May 9-14. Tickets go on sale at midday today.
Three lifelong friends Omz, Bilal and Joey play football. As they always have. Living football celebrity dreams. Beyond their football pitch, local shops are closing, old apartments are being demolished as new ones sprout up, some residents are struggling to stay while others rush to leave. When a small football pitch is a home, a place where you have laughed, fought and made friendships, what happens when it is threatened?
The cast is Kedar Williams-Stirling (Sex education), Emeka Sesay (Pretty red dress), and Francois Lovehall (small axe), and the production is led by the Associate Artistic Director of the Bush Theater Daniel Bailey.
Red Pitch-Online is streaming worldwide, so you can watch it from anywhere. The performance will start at 2:45 p.m. or 7:45 p.m. sharp. The film will be available for viewing on demand for 48 hours from the date and time selected. Each online performance is a live filmed broadcast that will be streamed to the public. It can be watched on device or web browser via Goggle Chromecast or on Apple TV, Android TV or Amazon Fire TV.
