NT Live: Leopoldstadt, 27 January

Leopoldstadt*Leopoldstadt

A new play by Tom Stoppard

Directed by Patrick Marber

Tom Stoppard’s Olivier Award-winning new play Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Leopoldstadt was the old, crowded Jewish quarter of Vienna, Austria. But Hermann Merz, a factory owner and baptised Jew now married to Catholic Gretl, has moved up in the world.

We follow his family’s story across half a century, passing through the convulsions of war, revolution, impoverishment, annexation by Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. A company of 40 actors represent each generation of the family in this epic, but intimate play.

Filmed live on stage in London’s West End, ‘Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece is magnificent’ (Independent) and should not be missed.

27 January, 7pm

Please note: There is no interval in this performance. 

Certificate 12A, 120 mins

Masks are required.

Russell Kane Live! 18 February SOLD OUT

Russell Kane Live: The Essex VariantRussell Kane Live!

Russell Kane Live: The Essex Variant!

Russell Kane’s bringing to town his gut-punch funny, searing, award-winning take on the two years we’ve just gone through. Hailed as the The Guardian’s Number 1 comedy performance to come out of 2020 (The Guardian are miserable and usually hate everything) – this high-octane show brings nuclear-energy belly laughs and pant-wetting observations which prove laughter really is the best medicine* (*actually, it’s probably hospital medicine).

 

Russell Kane has two chart-topping, award-bagging podcasts: Man Baggage and BBC Radio 4’s Evil Genius. He is a regular on Channel 4, BBC, and ITV: all the usual shows you see funny people on. He’s also a writer, actor, and presenter. He drinks lots of coffee and is ‘like that in real life’.

He was the first ever comedian to bag the two most prestigious comedy awards on earth in the same year, for the same show: The Dave’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards (formerly The Perrier), and The Melbourne International Comedy Festival Award, (formerly known as the Barry Award). He’s also a raving bighead that likes listing his achievements.

 ‘Russell Kane has made his name with verbose, hyperactive comedy – and he shows no sign of slowing down’ (THE I)

‘Fierce, funny and heartfelt… a thrilling reminder of what comedy can do’ (THE GUARDIAN)

‘Storming physical comedy… splendidly manic’ ***** (MAIL ON SUNDAY)

  • Masks are required. Please only attend if double vaccinated and do not have symptoms. The theatre will be well ventilated.

NT Live: The Book of Dust, 17 February

*The Book of Dust – La Belle Sauvage


by Philip Pullman, adapted by Bryony Lavery, directed by Nicholas Hytner


Set twelve years before the epic His Dark Materials trilogy, this gripping adaptation revisits Philip Pullman’s fantastical world in which waters are rising and storms are brewing.

Two young people and their dæmons, with everything at stake, find themselves at the centre of a terrifying manhunt. In their care is a tiny child called Lyra Belacqua, and in that child lies the fate of the future. And as the waters rise around them, powerful adversaries conspire for mastery of Dust: salvation to some, the source of infinite corruption to others.

Eighteen years after his ground breaking production of His Dark Materials at the National Theatre, director Nicholas Hytner returns to Pullman’s parallel universe. Broadcast live from London’s Bridge Theatre.

17 February, 7pm £15/13

NT Live: Henry V, 21 April

Henry V, by William Shakespeare

NT Live: Henry V
Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) plays the title role in Shakespeare’s thrilling study of nationalism, war and the psychology of power.
Fresh to the throne, King Henry V launches England into a bloody war with France. When his campaign encounters resistance, this inexperienced new ruler must prove he is fit to guide a country into war.
Captured live from the Donmar Warehouse in London, this exciting modern production directed by Max Webster (Life of Pi) explores what it means to be English and our relationship to Europe, asking: do we ever get the leaders we deserve?

Rich Hall's Hoedown Deluxe, 22 April

Rich Hall's Hoedown DeluxeRich Hall’s Hoedown Deluxe

Rich Hall’s comedy/music locomotive keeps on rollin’. Ever-evolving, ever-changing, Rich’s combination of keen acerbic stand-up combined with spit and sawdust alt-country lyricism is a “win-win” (GUARDIAN), as sold out crowds across the UK have attested. Fans keep returning because this show goes where other comedians wouldn’t dare: Barrow-in-Furness for example.

Rich’s acclaimed BBC4 documentaries (most recently Rich Hall’s Red Menace) and his Radio 4 series Election Breakdown have established a whole new legion of followers. He’s also a stalwart of QI and Have I Got News For You. But seeing the Hoedown is a whole different experience. Gut-busting, rib-tickling, toe-tapping, and shit-kicking, Rich Hall’s Hoedown Deluxe covers the full anatomical spectrum.

“Vital and incredulously angry. Hilarious.” (THE SCOTSMAN)

John Hegley: Drawings of Dromedaries and Other Animals, 13 May

|JOhn Hegley: Drawings of Dromedaries, and other animalsJohn Hegley

Drawings of Dromedaries and Other Animals

An evening of poems, drawings, stories and possibly dancing. Included in the spectacle are a pair of Dromedaries, alongside a number of newly composed pieces touching on John Keats’s letters and leisure activities. The singing camel (not to be confused with a dromedary) which the poet imagined in a letter to Jane and Mariane Renolds makes an appearance, although which song it sings is yet to be decided.
Other animals include Monsieur Robinet’s faithful canine companion, Chirac; 19th Century American geologist Florence Bascomb’s dog; as well as D. H. Lawrence’s tortoise, puffins, cats, frogs, elephants and half a dragon. Expect a combination of new pieces and species, and a batch selected from an extensive back catalogue. Includes some plant-based material and rhyming language. A performance devised to suit adults, but of interest to some nine-year-olds.

‘[an] exquisitely curated package that is unmistakably Hegley’ (Chortle)
‘Awesomely mundane’ (Independent).
