Stay Safe - a spine-chilling WhatsApp play

In the spotlight: Jack McNamara on Stay Safe

An interview by Shanine Salom for View From The Cheap Seat

A WhatsApp group is a modern-day campfire. A place to gather, gossip, myth-make and share stories. For many parents it’s a safe space to feel connected to their children’s school. But is anything really safe anymore?

Told entirely live through WhatsApp, Stay Safe continues New Perspectives ventures into exciting new theatrical forms, offering audiences a bite-sized drama with a splash of fear. Join the group, sit back and watch as the story transforms in the palm of your hand.

Here writer and New Perspectives Artistic Director Jack McNamara (via Whatsapp, of course) about making theatre in lockdown, performing in text, being based outside of London and what next for a theatre company that likes to experiment

Welcome

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.
