Following the incredible success of their first reading of The Two Gentleman of Verona, The Show Must Go Online today announce the full schedule for their upcoming livestreams, with the next reading of The Taming of the Shrew streamed on Thursday 26 March, 7pm.

The series of livestreamed readings aims to bring actors and audiences together to collectively enjoy and experience Shakespeare at a time when connecting in a traditional theatre space isn’t possible. The Two Gentleman of Verona now has over 24K views on YouTube and was watched live by audiences from over twenty-five different countries, from the USA to the Philippines, and from Poland to Malaysia.

The cast of this week’s reading of The Taming of the Shrew will also take part in Clap for our Carers at 8pm, the round of applause taking place across the country for NHS workers and front line health workers around the world and the extraordinary work they are doing. This will be led by cast member Mary Bragg Ion who is an NHS trauma therapist. For the full cast for this reading, please see https://twitter.com/robmyles/status/1242006913744875520?s=20

The company have also established a Patreon for the venture, which will be used as an opt-in hardship fund for the actors who take part – https://www.patreon.com/TheShowMustGoOnline
