Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds is excited to launch a brand-new online series, At Home With… in partnership with Theatre Tokens and sponsored by Theatre Royal Autumn Season Sponsor, Churchgates. The event, hosted on Zoom, will see celebrity pairings in conversation with each other from their own homes.

The first event on Thursday 20th August will feature Downton Abbey’s Laura Carmichael (Lady Edith Crawley) and her real-life pal Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary Crawley) as they chat about careers, life and whatever else takes their fancy!  The conversation will be hosted by Theatre Royal’s Artistic Director, Owen Calvert-Lyons and ticket-holders will have the chance to submit questions to the pair in advance.

As a traditional producing and presenting theatre, this series is a first for Theatre Royal and signals the start of a positive move towards welcoming audiences back, albeit virtually in this instance.

“This is a really unique opportunity to spend an evening with some of Britain’s best-loved actors, writers and journalists in the comfort of their own home.” Says Owen “The ‘At Home With…’ series is part of Theatre Royal’s response to the pandemic.  After the awful few months our country has been through, hopefully this will offer a little bit of sunshine that you can enjoy from your own home.”

This is the first in what Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds hopes to be a series of exciting celebrity duos, three more of which are already in the diary and will be announced shortly!

The event is in partnership with and sold exclusively through
