RGS Drama live streams its latest show – Chatroom
The RGS Drama department has been busy equipping their new studio as a live-streaming venue this week, in order to bring their production of the Enda Walsh play Chatroom to the widest audience possible. This 2005 play felt more relevant than ever, dealing as it does with issues of teenage bullying, online interactions, and the way we behave when we are anonymous. These are vital issues right now, especially as we become more divided and partisan through social media, and as we are forced to communicate online more than ever before.
The show was performed to a small, socially distanced live audience, and live-streamed each night to rgsdrama.net. The strong cast featured excellent, naturalistic performances from Doug Y, Rebecca E, Mais J, Lily F, Seb H and Billy R. The live stream was curated and directed by Morgan B, who also helped to shot on location in Redhill. Amelia D assistant directed, in possibly her last role after seven years of amazing contributions to RGS Drama.
