It will be urgent, responsive and fast – with writers filing their pieces by Tuesday and actors performing from Thursday, script-in-hand, hot off the press. Each edition will include performances relating to the moment we are in with local and global perspectives, longer form pieces, dating columns, a cartoon of the week, the world in pictures, a weather room, agony aunts, horoscopes and much more.


  • Tickets for the Online Premiere will go on sale at noon the Monday before.
  • Tickets will be available to buy online only.
  • Tickets start at £10 for each edition with higher prices, which include a donation, also available. Everyone will get the same view regardless of what ticket price they pay, however, we’d ask if possible that you consider paying what you would usually expect to pay for a night at the theatre. All donations will Support the Court.
  • It’s possible for a group to watch together on just one purchased ticket but, if you feel able, please consider buying multiple tickets if more than one person is watching.
