As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations, National Theatre Live will present encore screenings of some of the National’s most acclaimed recent productions at venues throughout the country including the Landmark Theatre, Ilfracombe.
Hamlet by William Shakespeare, Tuesday 22 October
The 2010 broadcast of Hamlet stars Rory Kinnear as Hamlet in a dynamic new production of Shakespeare’s complex and profound play about the human condition, directed by Nicholas Hytner. He is joined by Clare Higgins (Gertrude), Patrick Malahide (Claudius), David Calder (Polonius), James Laurenson (Ghost/Player King) and Ruth Negga (Ophelia).
The Habit of Art by Alan Bennett, Thursday 7 November
The 2010 broadcast of Alan Bennett’s acclaimed play The Habit of Art, with Richard Griffiths, Alex Jennings and Frances de la Tour. Alan Bennett’s play is as much about the theatre as it is about poetry or music. It looks at the unsettling desires of two difficult men, and at the ethics of biography. It reflects on growing old, on creativity and inspiration, and on persisting when all passion’s spent: ultimately, on the habit of art.
Frankenstein by Nick Dear, based on the novel by Mary Shelley, Sunday 10 November
National Theatre Live’s 2011 broadcast of Frankenstein starred Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller. Frankenstein enjoyed a sell-out run at the National Theatre, and went on to win awards including the 2012 Olivier Award for Best Actor for both actors.
