Hampstead Theatre is to stream its production of I and You by Lauren Gunderson, one of America's most performed playwrights, on demand on Instagram for free from 10AM on Monday 23 to 10PM on Sunday 29 March 2020.

The production, which starred Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) and Zach Wyatt, received its UK première in 2018. It was filmed 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.

It can be viewed next week on Instagram pages for @hampstead_theatre or @lalatellsastory (Lauren Gunderson) in two parts, the first running for 30 minutes and the second for 55 minutes. There is an age recommendation of 14+.

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 these unprecedented events 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.”
