Spoonface Steinberg Ert

ERT have announced they will be sharing their online production of Spoonface Steinberg on Friday 23rd October, which will be available to stream for FREE for one week only! 

Throughout the pandemic, ERT have been looking for ways to bring high-quality independent theatre back, and it starts with this online production of Spoonface Steinberg.

Spoonface Steinberg follows the story of a terminally ill autistic girl. The show plays out as a powerful and intensely moving monologue that turns funny frequently, poignant often and entertaining throughout. Written by Lee Hall, the critically acclaimed writer of Billy Elliot, directed by ERT artistic director Adrian Rawlins and staring local rising actress Evie Guttridge, this one is set to be brilliant so don't miss out!

Anyone who saw 'Spoonface' when it ran back in 2017, or those who might be familiar with the original radio production of Lee Hall's spellbinding story, knows that this exciting and emotional one-woman show is a must-watch! 

Despite the delay, the team can't wait for you to finally watch it and hope that you can feel a little bit of that theatre buzz again, courtesy of ERT.

Although Spoonface Steinberg will be free to watch, we encourage anyone who enjoys the performance to donate to ERT.

Government funding has given the theatre a huge boost, however ERT still faces a long period without it's main revenue: ticket sales.

Your donations are required to help a) pay for ongoing building costs and b) provide a modest amount of income for our local artists and creators, many of which work freelance and remain without work for the foreseeable.

To donate... visit the Donations page on their website here or Text ‘ERTATHOME’ with your chosen amount to 70490. 
(For example, to donate £1, text ‘ERTATHOME 1’).
