A Letter to theatre

I am writing this on the 29th December 2020.

I can’t remember the last time I reviewed a show which is really bad, if I think about it it may have even been in 2019. Work appeared to have gotten in the way, which is awful but now I have a different job and due to Covid I have not been to the theatre. 

In 2021 I want to return to the theatre when I am allowed. I realise now how important theatre is to me, if and when we can I will make the effort to see more performances. I would like to see a variety of theatre and different forms of performance art. 

I’d also like to be more engaged and involved in theatre- it sounds big headed but I want the industry to know my name, so that when something cultural is going on they tell me about it. I have been part time in theatre but in the new year I would like to be full time, not just drifting in and out of it.

I feel like I have missed out on a lot of cultural events and I want that to change, I want to be in the beating heart that is North East Culture. And not miss anything if I can help it.

I am sorry theatre, I feel like we have not had the best relationship with each other and I feel like I have been fading away from you. So to amend that in 2021 I will have a stronger relationship with theatre.

  1. I feel you, I miss theatre so much too! I can’t wait for them to finally be able to reopen (and stay open). There’s been a few attempts to get theatre up and running again, but most of them have all ended with their run being cancelled halfway through. I now live in London, but I’m from the North East and I’d give anything to be able to see something at the Live Theatre or Northern Stage right now ❤

      1. Yes, I think so! I would probably compare it to maybe The Other Palace, Charing Cross Theatre and The Southwark Playhouse. There’s another theatre called The Vaults which is not really similar to Northern Stage, but it’s super quirky and worth mentioning too. Have you had the chance to see theatre in London before?
