National Theatre Live: Straight Line Crazy

A new play by David Hare, directed by Nicholas Hytner.

Ralph Fiennes (Antony & Cleopatra) leads the cast in David Hare’s (Skylight) blazing account of the most powerful man in New York, a master manipulator whose legacy changed the city forever.

For forty uninterrupted years, Robert Moses exploited those in office through a mix of charm and intimidation. Motivated at first by a determination to improve the lives of New York City’s workers, he created parks, bridges and 627 miles of expressway to connect the people to the great outdoors.

Faced with resistance by protest groups campaigning for a very different idea of what the city should become, will the weakness of democracy be exposed in the face of his charismatic conviction?

Broadcast live from the Bridge Theatre in London, Nicholas Hytner directs this exhilarating new play.

In the Weeds

Kazumi is hunting a sea monster. Arriving on a remote Hebridean island, he meets Coblaith, a local woman whose family have lived there for generations.

When she offers to help him find the mythical creature behind a family tragedy, their relationship blossoms. But there's something strange about Cob's obsessive affection for the lochs and something even stranger about the way the other islanders treat her.

Although Cob insists that monsters are not real, Kazumi can’t help but be swept away with suspicion until he almost becomes the monster himself.

Exploring island identity and our troubled relationship to the natural environment, this new commission from award winning playwright Joseph Wilde is a gothic thriller about who gets to claim ownership of the land we all live on.

Presented by An Tobar and Mull Theatre.

Suitable for ages 13+ years (strong language and partial nudity).

National Theatre Live: Prima Facie

Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) makes her West End debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play.

Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) makes her West End debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play.

Tessa is a young, brilliant barrister. She has worked her way up from working class origins to be at the top of her game; defending; cross examining and winning. An unexpected event forces her to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morals diverge.

Prima Facie takes us to the heart of where emotion and experience collide with the rules of the game.

Justin Martin directs this solo tour de force, captured live from the intimate Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End.

A production from Empire Street Productions.

Errol's Garden

“I wish I could have a garden of my own, but all I see out there is concrete and pavement and more concrete...”

Errol loves plants so much that he has them growing out of every pot, pan and teacup he can find in his small flat, to the dismay of his family. He knows that plants need water, sunlight and space. They need a garden. Errol and his sister Tia search through their block of flats for the perfect space, and discover a neglected rooftop full of rubbish.

After Errol and Tia clean up the space, they imagine building a community garden, but first, they will need to convince all of their neighbours to pitch in and help. A grumpy neighbour and some garden pests try to stand in their way, but Errol is determined to make his dream a reality.

Filled with catchy songs, big ideas and a passion for plants, Errol's Garden is an interactive musical for audiences aged 3 - 11 years and their grownups.

Night Terrors – The Ghost Stories of E F Benson

This is a spine-tingling evening of three tales of the supernatural from E F Benson’s brilliant collection of ghost stories, Night Terrors.

With masterful storytelling from the award winning actor Gerard Logan, Night Terrors will transport you to a darker, more sinister world of the unexpected and the unexplainable.

The three stories (The Dance, In The Tube and The Confession of Charles Linkworth), are dramatic, haunting and hugely memorable.

'Logan is astounding... He takes a strong script and flies it to the stars' ★★★★★ Edinburgh Festival 2016

'Watching Logan work is like being privy to a wonder of nature and remains with you... A true masterpiece of solo performance' ★★★★★ The Edinburgh Guide - Edinburgh Festival 2015

Gerard Logan won The Stage Best Solo Performer of the 2011 Edinburgh Festival Award for his acclaimed performance in Gareth Armstrong’s production of Shakespeare’s The Rape of Lucrece. He won the Best Actor award at the 2014 Buxton Fringe Festival and was nominated for the Michael MacLiammoir Award for Best Male Performance at the 2016 International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival for his performance in
Wilde Without the Boy.

Gareth Armstrong has developed and directed many successful solo shows, including his own award winning Shylock.

Night Terrors is also underscored by a beautiful, original and specially commissioned score by the award winning RSC composer, Simon Slater.

Daytime Deewane

It’s 1997 and London is about to have its last daytime rave.

The end of an era is approaching. British South Asians flock for their last taste of rebellion. Among them are cousins Farhan and Sadiq. Both very different. Both escaping something. Both trying to decide what it means to be British and Pakistani, to be Muslim and a man – and they’ve got until 6pm to figure it out.

Inspired by the daytime raves of 1990s British Asian culture, Daytime Deewane explores the beauty and struggle of living with a multi-cultural identity as a teenager. Featuring a DJ mix merging soundscapes, dance music and spoken word, this immersive new show is an exhilarating gig theatre adventure.

Daytime Deewane, by Azan Ahmed, is the latest production from Half Moon, the UK’s leading small-scale young people’s venue and touring company, winner of the 2019 and 2018 Offies Award (Off West End Theatre) for Best Production for Young People Age 13+ (Crowded and What Once Was Ours).
