Theatregoers missing their fix of live theatre will love Scenesaver- - a free new website that is a hub showing cutting edge performances from theatres all over the world.

“Our aim is to be a “Netflix” for performances in off West end, Off Broadway and fringe theatres from all over the world.” said Caroline Friedman who created Scenesaver.

“Scenesaver is completely free to use, viewers are asked to pay a voluntary “ticket price” donation and this money goes directly to the theatre companies.

“We include all genres of performance for all ages including children. There are dramas, magic, comedy, fringe performances as well as work in foreign languages. Scenesaver provides people with the opportunity to see the more unusual and innovative shows from all over the world.

We are reaching out to performers in Africa to give them the chance to earn some money and have their work seen by new audiences from all over the world. “

In coming months, Scenesaver will be showcasing new work being created by performers both in the UK and overseas.  Scenesaver is also the host website for a new set of theatre awards, the OnComms, created by Off West End theatre in response to the closure of theatres. It is a chance to see the work being created during the pandemic and to see new, emerging talent. Previous Off West End award winners include Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Rufus Norris, Ardal O’Hanlon and Arinze Kene.

Performers creating new online work during the pandemic can apply to be considered for an award.
