Black is the Color of My Voice – 8 to 19 July
Inspired by the life of Nina Simone, Apphia Campbell’s stunning solo performance Black Is The Color Of My Voice follows a successful jazz singer and civil rights activist seeking redemption after the untimely death of her father.

Friend (The One With Gunther) – 15 to 25 July
The entirety of cult sitcom Friends – all 10 seasons and 236 episodes – in just one hour! This solo show from acclaimed comic actor Brendan Murphy, reimagining the TV classic through the eyes of barista Gunther. Grab a coffee and settle down in Gunther’s café, to hear the true insider story of what happened to Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Chandler, Monica and Joey – from the one Friends character who kept them caffeinated through all of the highs, lows, love affairs and failed auditions along the way.
Producer James Seabright said: “Thanks to a grant from the Cultural Recovery Fund we were able to give work to dozens of freelance actors, creatives and technicians, to record these wonderful productions and now present them to a global audience via stream.theatre.”
