App is crashing...

I have an email out to technical support after purchasing two plays ....

Really shoddy

I bought several plays to watch over the past two years and now the app no longer recognizes my account. I have contacted customer service and they don’t respond. If the app was a one time purchase it would be frustrating, but each play costs $12 and the presumption is that if you buy a play rather than rent it you will be able to watch it again in the future. This all reflects very poorly on The Globe, which is a shame.

Played once then went dead

I paid for one play which I enjoyed. A month later I went back to choose a second only to discover that the app - and the play I had paid for - were completely inaccessible. The developer's support page was blocked with an 'insecure connection' warning.
