Digital Theatre works in partnership with Britain's leading theatre companies to capture live performance authentically onscreen. Using multiple camera angles and high-definition technology, we bring the drama and emotion of each production to a global online audience.
With our unique methods we bring online a library of diverse and acclaimed productions from some of the finest theatre talent around. Each production is available to rent online for a limited period or downloaded to your desktop and enjoyed as many times as you wish.
In addition to our high quality productions, our unique catalogue can now be viewed in classrooms and lecture halls through Digital Theatre Plus while our exciting collections bring together our special projects and archival material from practitioners past and present.
People who like us...
Working with Digital Theatre on my recent production of All My Sons was a tremendously positive experience, artistically and financially. Digital Theatre has found the formula to successfully film theatre of the highest quality, providing a fulfilling experience for those theatre goers unable to attend live performances. The films will be treasured by companies for many years after their productions close and hopefully enjoyed by audiences around the world for decades to come. Best wishes for Digital Theatre’s continued growth and success. Kim Poster, West End theatre producer, Stanhope Productions
The pleasure of working with Digital Theatre is that they are truly collaborative, it's a proper artistic partnership from start to finish. In the past this kind of work has been vulnerable to artistic and financial abuse, but Digital Theatre are thankfully so open about their process that the results have already progressed and advanced. We are really looking forward to developing our partnership and exploring what promises to be a really exciting future. Michael Attenborough, Artistic Director, Almeida Theatre
We at English Touring Theatre are proud and excited to be a part of this exciting new initiative. Our production of Far from the Madding Crowd played to packed theatres on tour last year and this filmed version cleverly captures the raw energy and dynamism of the live production, seamlessly transporting it to a whole new medium and to a whole new audience. Rachel Tackley, Director, English Touring Theatre
We're always looking for ways to bring our work to the largest possible number of people. And the potential of digital technology to connect with a worldwide audience is genuinely exciting. Dominic Cooke, Artistic Director, Royal Court Theatre
There needs to be revolutionising of the capture of live theatre, and we are enjoying the pursuit of that ambition with Digital Theatre. Michael Boyd, Artistic Director, Royal Shakespeare Company
The combination of new technologies that promise filmed versions of productions that retain vitality and immediacy and producers who understand the needs of artists is a winning one. To create a filmed version of a show as eccentric and challenging as The Container, set in a shipping container, was a challenge. We thought if Digital Theatre can make this work, they can do anything. And they have. David Lan, Artistic Director, Young Vic
Capturing the alchemy of live performance is an enormous challenge. Digital Theatre set about it with a care and sensitivity that produces excellent results, and hopefully can open up the art form to ever increasing audiences. Ian Rickson, Director, PARLOUR SONG
