Present Laughter Poster


Thursday 30 January 2020

Start Time: 7pm (doors 6.30pm)

A giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness, Matthew Warchus directs Andrew Scott in Noël Coward’s provocative comedy Present Laughter. As he prepares to embark on an overseas tour, star actor Garry Essendine’s colourful life is in danger of spiralling out of control.

Cyrano De Bergerac Poster


Thursday 20 February 2020

Start Time: 7pm (doors 6.30pm)

An inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London. Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all - if only he could win the heart of his true love Roxane. There's just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart.

The Welkin Poster


Thursday 21 May 2020

Start Time: 7pm (doors 6.30pm)

Broadcast live from the National Theatre in London. One life in the hands of 12 women. As the country waits for Halley's comet, a young woman is sentenced to hang for a heinous murder. When she claims to be pregnant, a jury of 12 matrons are taken from their housework to decide whether she's telling the truth, or simply trying to escape the noose.

National Theatre Live brings the best of British theatre to cinema screens all over the UK and beyond. With state-of-the-art filming techniques, tailored to every play, you see the performance as it happens, in all its glory. From close-ups that capture every flicker of emotion, to sweeping wide shots of the stage.
