Sam & I

Presented by Take the Space

Over the flames of a candle, a woman holds her husband’s diary: 'You will not live through this fire' she whispers.

And then the wife of Samuel Pepys, Secretary to the Admiralty and Fellow of the Royal Society, relents and reads... the joys and trials of their household, the gossip of the Court, the horrors of the Great Plague, the flames of the Fire of London, the antics and betrayals of a serial adulterer - her husband.

This is Elizabeth’s dark night of the soul (everywoman has them, from bag lady to queen).

Fifteen figures of the Pepys circle come to life - from the highest in the land to the most menial.

This performance commemorates the 350th anniversary of Elizabeth Pepys’s death on 10th November 1669 and celebrates 'my wife', the clever, loyal and witty muse who made her husband great.

Directed by Chris Barnes, written and performed by Siobhán Nicholas.

NT Live: Fleabag (15)

Broadcast live to cinemas from London’s West End.

See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series Fleabag.

Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, Fleabag is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life.

Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.

Why? 'Witty, filthy and supreme' ★★★★★ Guardian

Wise Children

Recorded in 2018 at the York Theatre Royal.

Multi-award-winning director Emma Rice brings her unique, exuberantly impish vision to Angela Carter’s great last novel in this brand-new theatre production.

A big, bawdy tangle of theatrical joy and heartbreak, Wise Children is a celebration of show business, family, forgiveness and hope, with a generous dash of Shakespeare, scandal and mischief, taking the audience on a rollercoaster ride of emotion.

In Brixton, Nora and Dora Chance – twin chorus girls born and bred south of the river – are celebrating their 75th birthday. Over the river in Chelsea, their father – and greatest actor of his generation – Melchior Hazard turns 100 on the same day. As does his twin brother Peregrine. If, in fact, he’s still alive. And if, in truth, Melchior is their real father after all…

Why? ‘Pure, unadulterated theatre’ ★★★★★ Broadway World
