National Theatre Live: Dear England

Run time tbc

A new play by James Graham, directed by Rupert Goold.

Joseph Fiennes (The Handmaid’s Tale) plays Gareth Southgate in James Graham’s (Sherwood) gripping examination of nation and game.

The country that gave the world football has since delivered a painful pattern of loss. Why can’t England’s men win at their own game?

With the worst track record for penalties in the world, Gareth Southgate knows he needs to open his mind and face up to the years of hurt, to take team and country back to the promised land.

Filmed live on stage at the National Theatre, Rupert Goold (Judy) directs this spectacular
new play.

Please note: This production contains flashing lights, loud noises and some offensive language.

But as rehearsals progress, two ages of theatre collide and the collaboration between actor and director soon threatens to unravel.

Wicked Little Letters

Dir: Thea Sharrock 2023 | 100 mins

A 1920s English seaside town bears witness to a dark and absurd scandal in this riotous mystery comedy.

Based on a stranger than fiction true story, the film follows two neighbours: deeply conservative local Edith Swan (Olivia Colman) and rowdy Irish migrant Rose Gooding (Jessie Buckley).

When Edith and fellow residents begin to receive wicked letters full of unintentionally hilarious profanities, foulmouthed Rose is charged with the crime. The anonymous letters prompt a national uproar, and a trial ensues. However, as the town's women - led by Police Officer Gladys Moss (Anjana Vasan) - begin to investigate the crime themselves, they suspect that something is amiss, and Rose may not be the culprit after all.

Starring Olivia Colman, Jessie Buckley, Timothy Spall, Malachi Kirby, Eileen Atkins, Anjana Vasan.

All of Us Strangers

Dir: Andrew Haigh 2023 | 105 mins

Nominated for six BAFTAs including Best Direction, Best British Film and Best Adapted Screenplay.

One night in his near-empty tower block in contemporary London, Adam (Andrew Scott) has a chance encounter with a mysterious neighbour Harry (Paul Mescal), which punctures the rhythm of his everyday life.

As a relationship develops between them, Adam is preoccupied with memories of the past and finds himself drawn back to the suburban town where he grew up, and the childhood home where his parents (Claire Foy and Jamie Bell), appear to be living, just as they were on the day they died, 30 years before.

'Paul Mescal and Andrew Scott tremendous in a beautiful fantasy-romance' ★★★★★ The Guardian

Royal Opera House Live: Madama Butterfly

Running time 195 minutes (including one interval) | Sung in Italian with English subtitles

Puccini’s devastating tragedy about a young geisha who falls in love with an American naval officer.

When the young geisha, Cio-Cio-San, marries American Naval Officer Pinkerton, she believes she is entering a real, binding marriage for life. Forsaking her religion and community, she learns all too late that for Pinkerton, their marriage is merely an illusion – with tragic consequences.

With a score that includes Butterfly’s aria, 'Un bel dì, vedremo' (‘One fine day’) and the Humming Chorus, Giacomo Puccini’s opera is entrancing and ultimately heart-breaking. Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier’s exquisite production takes inspiration from 19th-century European images of Japan.

Asmik Grigorian and Hrachuhí Bassénz share the role of Cio-Cio-San, with Kevin John Edusei conducting.
