Miriam Margolyes and Amit Shah to star in new online play

Louise Coulthard’s new online short play, ‘Watching Rosie’, will have its world premiere in August.

Created by Original Theatre, the show will star award-winning actress Miriam Margolyes, Amit Shah and Coulthard herself. The play explores how those with dementia are coping during lockdown.

It will be presented as free of charge on 6 August at 7.00pm, though audiences are encouraged to donate to Dementia UK.

Original Theatre’s artistic director Alastair Whatley said:

“We are thrilled to be announcing Watching Rosie today. I greatly admired the play on stage and have really enjoyed working with Louise and Mike [Fentiman] to develop it for online audiences. I am very proud of the Original Theatre team, who have kept working throughout lockdown, adapting and diversifying our work and, in so doing, reaching a brand new online audience which is extending all over the world.”
