Each year, thousands of theatregoers check out Vault Festival, an annual event that celebrates theatre, cabaret and immersive experiences. Although in-person performances are cancelled for 2021, five weeks of streamed performances from prior Vault Festivals will be vailable.

During the online festival, audiences can watch a new production, previously staged in recent years. All shows will be 360-degree immersive, allowing viewers to see every aspect of the production. All events will be charged on a Pay What You Can basis.

The list of shows and streaming dates are as follows:

Verspertilio: A troubled teenager and a mouse-eared bat form an emotional connection, where surviving and living are two entirely different states of being. Available from 18 - 21 February.

Patricia Gets Ready (for a date with a man who used to hit her): Martha Watson Allpress' one-woman play sees Patricia get ready for a date with her ex. Available from 25 - 28 February.

An Orange in the Subway: Cassie is a homeless 18 year old girl just trying to get by. She's seen a great deal, including a spaceman who supposedly grants her three magical powers. But what will she wish for? Available from 4 - 7 March.

Gypsy Queen: Two professional boxers discover their greatest challenge isn't each other. It's fighting away their thoughts outside the ring. Available from 11 - 14 March.

Lamplighters: A spymaster has lost his agent. He needs a spy network. It's up to you. This interactive spy game will test your nerve. Available from 18 - 21 March.
