About the live online reading

This will be no ordinary online event! Blessed Assurance brings together actors, singers and musicians, all of whom will be contributing from different locations on the night. It promises to be a lot of fun, and we’re really looking forward to the challenge of bringing it all together for our online audience to enjoy.

We usually perform Blessed Assurance as a dinner theatre event, so you are of course most welcome to bring your own dinner while you watch the reading!

  • Debbie Christie will read ‘Anne’
  • Willie Elliott will read ‘Tom’
  • Maria McAteer will read ‘Liza’
  • Brendan Murray will read ‘Pete’
  • Director: Darren Cheek

Please note you will not need to download anything to attend, or be technically savvy.

Once you’ve emailed us to RSVP your place, we’ll send you the link to this private live online viewing. You’ll just need to click on the link to be involved.

More readings to follow…

This evening forms part of a programme we’re hoping to grow. We may be socially distancing but theatre can go on. And for us it definitely will go on, with a series of online development readings of new plays.

These will give our audiences the opportunity to take part in discussions between writer, director and cast. They’ll all be free to attend, and will all be followed by a reflective Q&A session afterwards.

We hosted an online reading of On a Wicklow Hill in April and in June we’ll present Kelvin Seggr’s Diary of a Madman. More on this later.

Keep safe, keep happy and keep in touch and hopefully see you for our live online reading on Wednesday 29 April at 8.15pm (UK time).

We really hope you can join us for this unique event!
