Each night at 7 p.m. Pacific Standard Time, the program will feature unique entertainment. Dance, music, theatre and conversations with some of the world’s most iconic personalities and innovators will be available to view online. The opening night will come from the Royal Court Theater in London showcasing David Ireland’s new play “Cyprus Avenue.” Stephen Rea’s superb performance balances both humor and horror, described by The Guardian as “The Most Shocking Play on the London Stage.” This play is not to be missed and it is just the start of BritWeek 2020. BritWeek dedicates the week of dynamic performances to the healthcare workers, first responders and service providers risking their lives during the worldwide pandemic.
