March & April Events: CTC bringing the stage to your living rooms
CTC presents ‘An Irish Engagement’
March 27, 19:00; free adm; online event via https://fb.me/e/2a8OEfVET
The Copenhagen Theatre Circle has been valiantly bringing live theatre readings into our living rooms during the lockdown. A pre-Christmas production of ‘Much Ado about Nothing’, which involved a huge cast, can still be accessed for your enjoyment via the CTC’s Facebook page. Next up is a belated celebration of St Patrick’s Day: a live reading of ‘An Irish Engagement’, a 1848 play by Walter Watts, which is described as a “farce in one-act”. The reading will be one hour long, and the entire cast (who all auditioned for their roles) will be in costume.
