With each production, 19th Street tries to programme related theatre events to engage communities across London and the UK. We believe theatrical experiences and career development should be accessible to everyone, regardless of means or location. Read below to learn about what we’ve done so far, and what events are coming soon.
Post-Show Guest Panel and Q&A
Finborough Theatre, 1st December 2021
A post-show event following the evening’s performance with our entire cast, Director Max Elton, the Finborough Theatre’s Literary Manager Sue Healy and our incredible author David Ireland. Audiences got to hear about the creative process of our artists and the inspiration behind Yes So I Said Yes, and ask questions about the performance. Open to all that purchased tickets that evening, we had a wonderful sold-out event!
Coming Soon – a free online recording of the event, available on 19th Street’s Youtube channel and through the Finborough Theatre’s online programming.

Open Rehearsed Reading and Q&A for Yes So I Said Yes
London Irish Centre, 12th November 2021
The London Irish Centre and 19th Street Productions hosted a free reading of David Ireland’s Yes So I Said Yes by our talented cast, followed by a lively Q&A.

Open Table Read of Yes So I Said Yes
Irish Cultural Centre Hammersmith, 2nd November 2021
We partnered with the Irish Cultural Centre Hammersmith to hold an open table read of Yes So I Said Yes, with the cast, as part of our rehearsal process. This was a first read for both cast and centre members, where we shared the experience of this new Northern Irish piece together. With the Irish Cultural Centre, we were able to provide an educational window into the rehearsal process and gain valuable feedback from centre participants, which in turn guided our production. A tremendous thank you to our very brave cast and our fabulous partner.
