National Theatre Live is the groundbreaking project by London’s National Theatre to broadcast the best of British theater live from the London stage to cinemas across the UK and around the world.  The RBFS will present each broadcast “as live” at a later date, after it is captured as it occurs in London. Each broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience in the theater, and cameras are carefully positioned throughout the auditorium to ensure that cinema audiences get the “best seat in the house” view of the production.  Where the cameras are placed is different for each broadcast, to make sure that cinema audiences enjoy the best possible experience every time.

A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Yerma. The play is based on Spanish playwright Federico Garcia Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece. This theater phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and is not to be missed. The Times gave it five stars and called it “an extraordinary theatrical triumph.”The Independent said the production was “a shatteringly powerful reinvention of a familiar classic.”

The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful) returns in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role. Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking climax. She has the capacity to give performances that can stun and exhaust. The Daily Telegraph describes her performance as “devastatingly powerful.” (Rated: R, Runtime 2 hours, with no intermission).
