Digital Theatre has announced the launch of a new subscription package that will allow users access to all of its content for a fixed monthly fee.

For £9.99 a month, subscribers will be able to watch all Digital Theatre’s current and future content, including the Royal Shakespeare Company’s productions of The Tempest, starring Simon Russell Beale, and King Lear, featuring Antony Sher.

Individual productions will still be available to rent at a cost of £7.99 a show.

Digital Theatre chairman Justin Cooke said: “Our mission is to make the performing arts accessible to all, irrespective of social, economic or geographic circumstances. The power of digital is providing people, who might not otherwise have the opportunity, with access to fantastic performances, at a fraction of the cost of a typical ticket.”
