Shakespeare on Zoom

A global pandemic didnt stop Irelands love of theatre. A collaboration of theatre companies from Portstewart in Northern Ireland put on a production of Shakespeares, The Tempest via zoom during the earlier stages of the pandemic. In April of 2020, the zoom performance had its debut, selling out many weekends. This idea inspired others, leading to a new genre of theatre, called, Zoom Shakespeare. Another group of actors collaborated to create a production they cleverly titled, A Midsummer Nights Stream.
