Paines Plough have announced a limited digital release for their family show REALLY BIG AND REALLY LOUD, written by Phoebe Eclair-Powell and directed by Paines Plough’s Joint Artistic Director Katie Posner. After touring the UK as part of Paines Plough’s 2021 Roundabout season to critical acclaim, the production is no available to watch online from the comfort of your home this Easter.
REALLY BIG AND REALLY LOUD is available to watch for free on YouTube from 11-25 April below:
Joint Artistic Director Katie Posner said:
‘I loved directing this show last year and seeing the Roundabout literally buzzing with life as we took Charli’s story around the country. It’s a play about finding our voices and being bold and brave in saying what we want to say, and I hope it will empower young people everywhere to be whoever they want to be!
We’re so excited that Really Big and Really Loud will be available to watch for free this Easter, and to be bringing the Roundabout to families at home wherever they are.’
Written by award-winning playwright Phoebe Eclair-Powell, REALLY BIG AND REALLY LOUD is about losing your voice and going on a big adventure to find it again. It features a rageful rhino, a very helpful fly called Stephen and some really good songs about chips.
