The fastest-selling production in the Young Vic’s history, Tennessee Williams’ timeless masterpiece A Streetcar Named Desire will be broadcast live from their London home by National Theatre Live.

Prospero, Duke of Milan, usurped and exiled by his own brother,
holds sway over an enchanted island. He is comforted by his
daughter Miranda and served by his spirit Ariel and his deformed
slave Caliban. When Prospero raises a storm to wreck this
perfidious brother and his confederates on the island, his longcontemplated
revenge at last seems within reach.
Inspired by reports of the first English colonies in the West
Indies and imbued with a spirit of magic and the supernatural,
The Tempest is Shakespeare’s late great masterpiece of
forgiveness, generosity and enlightenment.
Jeremy Herrin’s previous work for Shakespeare’s Globe
includes 2011’s much loved Much Ado About Nothing.

National Theatre Live’s thrilling broadcast of Frankenstein returns to cinemas for a limited time, due to unprecedented audience demand.

Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (12 Years A Slave, Star Trek: Into Darkness) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Mansfield Park) alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and his creation.

The production was a sell-out hit at the National Theatre in 2011, and the broadcast has since become an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered Creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.

Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

When three witches tell Macbeth that he is destined to occupy
the throne of Scotland, he and his wife choose to become the
instruments of their fate and to kill the first man standing in their
path, the virtuous King Duncan. But to maintain his position,
Macbeth must keep on killing – first Banquo, his old comradein-
arms; then, as the atmosphere of guilt and paranoia thickens,
anyone who seems to threaten his tyrant’s crown.
From its mesmerising first moments to the last fulfilment
of the witches’ prophecy, Shakespeare’s gripping account of
the profoundest engagement with the forces of evil enthrals the
imagination.

Hermia loves Lysander and Helena loves Demetrius – but
Demetrius is supposed to be marrying Hermia… When the Duke
of Athens tries to enforce the marriage, the lovers take refuge in
the woods and wander into the midst of a dispute between the
king and queen of the fairies.
Shakespeare put some of his most dazzling dramatic poetry
at the service of this teasing, glittering, hilarious and amazingly
inventive play, whose seriousness is only fleetingly glimpsed
beneath its dreamlike surface.

JOHN


'Outstandingly effective and gripping dance theatre. A brilliant performance by Hannes Langolf'
Dagens Nyheter, Sweden


JOHN is a new verbatim dance-theatre work by Lloyd Newson, Artistic Director of DV8 Physical Theatre. Newson interviewed more than 50 men asking them frank questions, initially about love and sex. One of those men was John.

What emerged was a story that is both extraordinary and touching. Years of crime, drug use and struggling to survive lead John on a search in which his life converges with others, in an unexpected place, unknown by most. JOHN authentically depicts real-life stories, where movement and spoken word combine to create an intense, moving and poignant theatrical experience.

...and that’s why I come here, because it’s another door that’s opened, you never know where this is gonna lead.

It’s a dark, stormy night. The stars are out. Jim, the inn-keeper’s granddaughter, opens the door to a terrifying stranger. At the old sailor’s feet sits a huge sea-chest, full of secrets. Jim invites him in – and her dangerous voyage begins.

This winter, Robert Louis Stevenson’s story of murder, money and mutiny is brought to life on the Olivier stage in a thrilling new adaptation by Bryony Lavery.

Not one of us must breathe a word of what we’ve found...
