10 - 12 September 2020
As we go into semi-lockdown again, there is no doubt that many theatres are struggling to survive. To help Jermyn Street Theatre, buy a ticket to watch Esther Freud’s play Stitchers directed by BAFTA- winning filmmaker Gaby Dellal and starring Sinead Cusack (every penny goes directly to the theatre). Based on a true story, Cusack plays Lady Anne Tree who taught needlework in prisons to help inmates, and founded the wonderful charity Fine Cell Work (Freud writes movingly about what inspired her to write the play here). First shown in 2018, it’s been hailed as ‘an inspiring and heartwarming debut play’ by Freud whose first novel Hideous Kinky was made into a film starring Kate Winslet. Granta named her one of the Best Young Novelists under 40 and she is the author of seven novels. Dellal is a British director of film, television and theatre based in America. Her most recent feature film, Three Generations, starred Elle Fanning, Naomi Watts and Susan Sarandon. The plays go live at 7.30pm on September 10th, 11th and 12th and you can buy the tickets here.
