In August Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds launched a brand-new online series, At Home With… in partnership with Theatre Tokens and sponsored by Theatre Royal Autumn Season Sponsor, Churchgates. The event, which was hosted on Zoom, saw celebrity pairings in conversation with each other from their own homes.

The first event on Thursday 20 2020th August featured Downton Abbey’s Laura Carmichael (Lady Edith Crawley) and her real-life pal Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary Crawley) as they chatted about careers, life and whatever else took their fancy!  The conversation was be hosted by Theatre Royal’s Artistic Director, Owen Calvert-Lyons and ticket-holders had the chance to submit questions to the pair in advance.

As a traditional producing and presenting theatre, this series was a first for Theatre Royal and signaled 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.” Said 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 a series of exciting celebrity duos, the event was in partnership with and sold exclusively through

Tickets for the event were priced at an affordable £5 with the option to add a donation to Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds at time of booking. Any donations were added to their The Show Will Go On! reopening appeal.
