Helios

Presented by Wright & Grainger.

‘Very cleverly involves the audience in an hour in which past and present, the ancient and the contemporary, lightness and darkness mingle’ Lyn Gardner

A lad lives half way up a historic hill. A teenager is on a road trip to the city in a stolen car. A boy is driving a chariot, pulling the sun across the sky.

This is a story about the son of the god of the sun.

Helios transplants the Ancient Greek tale into a modern-day myth wound round the winding roads of rural England and into the everyday living of a towering city. It’s a story about life, the invisible monuments we build to it and the little things that leave big marks.

From ‘Masters of Storytelling’ (Fourthwall) Wright & Grainger, Helios is the award-winning follow up to the internationally-acclaimed Orpheus, Eurydice, and The Gods The Gods The Gods.

Join them in our intimate Studio setting with a tape player - and delicate tale to tell.

National Theatre Live: The Motive and the Cue

180 mins

A new play by Jack Thorne, directed by Sam Mendes.

Sam Mendes (The Lehman Trilogy) directs Mark Gatiss as John Gielgud and Johnny Flynn as Richard Burton in this fierce and funny new play.

1964: Richard Burton, newly married to Elizabeth Taylor, is to play the title role in an experimental new Broadway production of Hamlet under John Gielgud’s exacting direction. But as rehearsals progress, two ages of theatre collide and the collaboration between actor and director soon threatens to unravel.

Written by Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) and designed by Es Devlin (The Crucible), the Evening Standard award-winning best new play was filmed live during a sold-out run at the National Theatre.

National Theatre Live: Dear England

182 minutes

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.
