The National Theatre of Scotland celebrated its fifth birthday in 2011 by inventing Five Minute Theatre, 24 hours of five minute performances from all over Scotland and the world streamed live here on one amazing Midsummer night last year.
It was such a success that they are doing it again; but this time it won't all be on one night. First, on May 1, the theme will be Protest. 60 shows, six hours, from 6pm. Could be any kind of protest, large or small, domestic or international. Once again, STV is working with the National Theatre of Scotland to bring the shows to the widest possible audiences, streaming them right here. They should be available to review individually at your leisure later. Picture and sound quality will vary a bit. So will the content, so look out for the Guidance notices to avoid any unpleasant surprise. And join us on Mayday.
