London’s Hampstead Theatre is set to re-release Maisie Williams and Zach Wyatt led play I and You on Instagram.
Written by Lauren Gunderson, one of America’s most produced playwrights, the show is a witty and uplifting portrayal of friendship, youth and living life to the full.
The Game of Thrones actress plays Caroline, a young girl who is housebound due to illness. Not able to go to school, Facebook is her only company, until a classmate bursts in, uninvited, and an unlikely friendship develops.
The show was a box office and critical success at Hampstead Theatre when it debuted in 2018 receiving numerous 4-star reviews.
Roxana Silbert, Artistic Director of Hampstead Theatre said: “Like everyone in the theatre community right now, and indeed across the globe, we at Hampstead Theatre are watching theseunprecedentedevents unfold and wondering what we can do to help.
We are an industry that seeks to bring people together and tell stories that resonate. I hope this particularly tender and funny story offers some much-needed entertainment and connection right now – thank you to Lauren Gunderson, Edward Hall, Maisie Williams, Zach Wyatt and the entire company in allowing us to share your beautiful work.”
The production was specially performed, filmed and edited for Instagram’s mobile video platform IGTV, during its run at the theatre, and was previously broadcast for free from 30 November to 3 December 2018.
The show will be available for free, from Monday 23 March 2020 at 10am until Sunday 29 March 10pm GMT, to anyone with an Instagram account.
