With public performances outlawed, Greenwich Theatre has launched an inspired programme of free online opportunities for artists for find a creative outlet and for audiences to get their cultural fix.

A weekly series of events, under the banner of Greenwich Connects, will include archive shows and Q&A sessions with experts as well as writing and performing challenges to be streamed across the theatre’s social media channels.

Every Monday morning the theatre will set a theme or a style and invite performers to send in self-taped monologues to be aired the following day.

On Wednesdays, an expert from the theatre world will answer questions you submit through the theatre’s Instagram account.

On Friday evenings, you can watch some of Greenwich Theatre’s greatest past productions, including acclaimed stagings of School For Scandal and The Duchess Of Malfi, by tuning in to Facebook at 7.30pm.

And on Sundays, the theatre will set a theme for a piece of short writing to be submitted by the following Sunday. The top picks will get a public airing online or once the theatre reopens.
