The world premiere of a new play will be live-streamed from a St Albans theatre this weekend.
Alice Briganti and Will Pattle's The Removal Service will be streamed from the Maltings Theatre at 7.30pm on Saturday, March 13.
Directed by Luke Adamson, the production will then be available to download until Saturday, March 27.
The show continues OVO and the Maltings Theatre's spring streaming season following The Regina Monologues, the recording of which you can still watch until March 13.
Disguised as removal men, brothers Zeek and Greg attempt to rob a house on the outskirts of London in The Removal Service.
However, a terrifying discovery flips the situation on its head and they get more than they bargained for.
The Removal Service is a fast-paced, darkly comic drama about family, deceit, morality, masculinity and unbottling the truth.
Director Luke Adamson said: "I have been directing for 10 years and worked a lot with new writing and when this script landed in my inbox I knew I had to do it.
"It is character driven drama that solicits lots of laughs from the absurdity of the situation that these two very real people find themselves in.
