Movies vs. Plays

Reply Sat 1 Jun, 2013 11:28 am
A live performance of a play generally lasts for only a limited duration. Even while it is being played, it is often more expensive than much of the public can afford. Some people live far away and can not get to the theater.

Have plays ever been filmed while they were being performed and then made available after the play is closed for good?

Thank you.

So can I obtain a copy of a play at Netflix, the public library, etc.?

Why not contact your library and/or Netflix and find out?

Plays are much different than movies, as they generally go un-edited for reasons that film would frequent: time, content, necessity of line...
Most major plays have been filmed, and many less know ones as well.
The first thing I recommend you doing is searching "youtube" for them, as many high school and college productions can be found there, usually in parts.
There are also many community theatre groups in most areas where you can see the plays for a small fee or for free. Nothing better then live stage action.

Iranian Nights springs to mind. It was written as a response to Ayatollah Khomeinei's fatwa against Salmon Rushdie. It's still very relevant and quite brilliant.
