"These little telephone dramas may be morsels, but like any good piece of theatre - whether epic or bite-size - they give you a vivid glimpse into someone else's life" Stagedoor

"Full of relish and life ...packs a lot into five minutes" Reviews Hub


Short love dramas performed live down the telephone

145 years since its first appearance, our love affair with the telephone continues to grow.

And at a time where we all need love and connection more than ever, New Perspectives has teamed up with award-winning rural theatre-maker Sophia Hatfield to offer a series of short love-themed plays to be performed live down the telephone over Valentine's weekend to the person of your choice.

Book a time and you or your loved one will receive a five-minute play performed just for them by phone. The perfect Valentine's gift for the special person in your life, a drama lover or anyone in need of a touch of romance.

Pick up the phone and let the drama unfold...
56 performances took place over Valentine's weekend:
Saturday 13 February, performances from 2pm through to 9.45pm
Sunday 14 February, performances from 11am through to 8.45pm

"I missed the shared experience of laughing together in an auditorium, but since that is not an option right now, maybe this was the next best thing... an effective and creative piece of theatre" LondonTheatre1

"One performances that reduce if not eliminate the barrier between audience and actor" Last Minute Theatre Tickets


Target audience age: 16yrs+
Running time: 5 mins

Welcome

New Perspectives is the East Midlands’ touring theatre company. 

Founded in 1973, we champion new writing, under-represented voices and powerful stories, touring world-class theatre into the heart of communities – reaching rural audiences where they live.

We believe that all people, whatever their age, circumstance or identity, have the right to access practice and inspire theatre and that all places can be sites of exciting cultural exchange.
