MYSTERY OF 1400 YEAR-OLD LOCAL TREASURE TO BE BROUGHT TO LIFE AT HOME AS HOARD: REDISCOVERED UNEARTHED ONLINE

6th November 2020

The New Vic Theatre is making its production of Hoard: Rediscovered, a dramatic celebration of the mysteries of the Staffordshire Hoard, available to watch online from Wednesday 18 November – Tuesday 1 December.

As audiences are unable to visit the theatre in person during November, the New Vic is taking its fascinating drama based around a 1400 year old local legend online. The digital version of Hoard: Rediscovered will be available for audiences to buy to watch at home, from Wednesday 18 November to Tuesday 1 December.

Hoard: Rediscovered reunites the original cast and creative team from the New Vic’s critically acclaimed 2015 Staffordshire Hoard Festival, to tell the intriguing story of the discovery of this astonishing hoard of treasure, the people it might have belonged to, and the experts who tried to unravel its meanings.

The online production will include a filmed version of New Vic Artistic Director Theresa Heskins’ documentary-drama Unearthed, and eleven mini plays from some of the country’s most talented writers including Isy Suttie and Lemn Sissay, directed by Gemma Fairlie.

Tickets for the online stream of Hoard: Rediscovered cost £15.00 and can be purchased in advance by calling the Box Office on 01782 717962 (audiences will receive a link to watch the show on Wednesday 18 November). From Wednesday 18 November, audiences will be able to buy the show, to watch on demand, from the theatre’s website. The Box Office team are contacting all customers who had bought tickets to see Hoard: Rediscovered in person at the theatre to discuss their options.

Tickets for this show include a donation to the New Vic Theatre (Charity Registration Number: 253242). £5.00 of the face value of the £15.00 ticket will be treated as a non-refundable donation, to help the New Vic manage the impact of Coronavirus, in particular the risk of performance cancellations, helping us to ensure we can continue the great work we do.
