Introducing Thespie – Your New Home For Theatre with Everything from Fleabag to Figaro makes it easy for those stuck at home craving culture to discover and access the very best performing arts from around the world via a digital platform. This isn’t just for the Londoners who use apps to buy tickets for theatre, but for the wider community who have limited or lost access to live performing arts.

If like me, you’ve been scrabbling to find all the online arts shows available in one place then run, don’t walk to check Thespie out. Don’t get me wrong, it’s been great having the NT Live at Home, The Shows Must Go on, the MET etc. but if you are not in the right Whats App ‘luvvie’ group then you will have missed so much more lockdown arts candy already.

Life-long theatre-kid Tyler Stoops, who created Thespie, says “the arts sector is vital, even in normal times – hundreds of millions don’t have the access or economic means to be ‘in the room where it happens,’ but are still part of the broader theatre community and craft their own journey of discovery.”

Already featuring over 1000 curated theatre shows, filmed and live performances, livestream listings and educational resources from world-leading cultural institutions and content platforms, including National Theatre Live; Sadler’s Wells; The Royal Court Theatre; Met Opera; Audible; Disney and Amazon Prime, Thespie and Stoops look set to conquer theatre land.

By showcasing the beauty and power of live performing arts and its creative artists, Thespie provides arts creators free listings and opportunity to monetise streaming performances, long-form video, audio, artist talks, podcasts, ebooks, scripts and digital songbooks among other rich arts content.
