This innovative theatre-film hybrid stars ‘Fleabag’ star Sian Clifford

Is it a play? Is it a film? Well, it’s something in between. Following on from the success of their live-streamed production of Tom Stoppard’s ‘A Separate Peace’ in May 2020, London theatre company Platform Presents will premiere ‘Good Grief’, by Lorien Haynes. Created for the screen, not the stage, the play was rehearsed over Zoom and filmed in a studio to be streamed for three months from February 15.

Directed by Natalie Abrahami, ‘Good Grief’ is a romantic comedy which follows the story of two friends coming to terms with the loss of a woman they both loved. BAFTA award-winning Sian Clifford – otherwise known as Fleabag’s uptight sister, Claire – stars alongside Nikesh Patel, who you might recognise as Foaly in ‘Artemis Fowl’. The composer is Isobel Waller-Bridge (sister of Phoebe). 

The ticketing model is pleasantly straightforward: it’s £15 for your household, and you can watch anytime, as many times as you like for the entire season. There are £10 tickets available for NHS and key workers, students, under 25s and those with low/income unemployed. Plus, a 20 percent match donation will be made to Macmillan Cancer Care and the NHS.
