Medea

by Euripides in a new version by Ben Power
Directed by Carrie Cracknell

Helen McCrory (The Last of the Haussmans) returns to the National Theatre to take the title role in this powerful tragedy.

Medea is a wife and a mother. For the sake of her husband, Jason, she’s left her home and borne two sons in exile. But when he abandons his family for a new life, Medea faces banishment and separation from her children. Cornered, she begs for one day’s grace.

It’s time enough. She exacts an appalling revenge and destroys everything she holds dear.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Following its smash-hit live broadcast in 2012, the National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time returns to cinemas.

Based on the acclaimed novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has been hailed by The Times as ‘a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle’. Winner of 7 Olivier Awards in 2013, including Best New Play.

Christopher, fifteen years old, has an extraordinary brain – exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion of killing Mrs Shears' dog Wellington, he records each fact about the event in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of the murder. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

Frankenstein

Thu., Oct 16, 2014, 8:30pm, Cumberbatch as Creature
Fri., Oct 31, 2014, 8:30pm, Miller as Creature

by Nick Dear, based on the novel by Mary Shelley
Directed by Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire)

Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (12 Years A Slave, Star Trek: Into Darkness) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Mansfield Park) alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and his creation.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered Creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.

Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

Of Mice and Men

by John Steinbeck, Directed by Anna D. Shapiro

This landmark production starring James Franco, Chris O’Dowd, Leighton Meester and Jim Norton is the first Broadway production filmed by National Theatre Live.

Lovingly evoked by director Anna D. Shapiro (August: Osage County), a superb design team and a finely tuned ensemble cast, the setting is rural California in the 1930s, during the height of the Great Depression, when an entire class was uprooted, yearning for a home. Steinbeck's sturdy dramatization of his classic 1937 novel is rich in rustic atmosphere, flavorful vernacular, pervasive melancholy, harshness and human compassion.
