For the last month, Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch has been asking its audiences‎ about their experience of lockdown. The Theatre has received over 1,000 responses – online and by phone – each of them by turn, surprising, funny, moving and ultimately full of hope.

Now the Theatre is placing those stories firmly centre stage in its empty auditorium, reflecting them back in a loving patchwork of encounters that share the collective voice of an extraordinary community.

Superstitions about ghostlights allow echoes of former actors to perform in a theatre that’s closed, where the stage is empty. But what happens when one such ghost has been waiting for her much loved audience to return? Join us and see…

Attend the Theatre online on one of three evenings only‎, for a special and unique short event – at 7.30pm on Wednesday 24, Thursday 25 or Friday 26 June.

If joining the event, please consider making a minimum donation of £10, by text, online or phone, more if you feel able. Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch will be using those donations to enable future creative and community projects when the doors re-open – and the theatre ghosts move on!
