NT Live: Medea
NT Live: Medea
by Euripides in a new version by Ben Power
September 13, 2014 through September 14, 2014
Saturday: 2pm & 7pm, Sunday: 2pm & 7pm

Terrible things breed in broken hearts.


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.


Helen McCrory (The Last of the Haussmans) takes the title role in Euripides’ powerful tragedy, in a new version by Ben Power, directed by Carrie Cracknell, with music written by Will Gregory and Alison Goldfrapp.

NT Live: Frankenstein
NT Live: Frankenstein
by Nick Dear, based on the novel by Mary Shelley
November 14, 2014 through November 16, 2014
Friday, Nov 14: 7pm & 10pm - Saturday, Nov 15: 2pm & 7pm - Sunday, Nov 16: 2pm & 7pm

National Theatre Live’s thrilling broadcast of Frankenstein returns to cinemas for a limited time, due to unprecedented audience demand.

Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony), 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.

The production was a sell-out hit at the National Theatre in 2011, and the broadcast has since become an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world.

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.

Nt Live: Skylight
Nt Live: Skylight
By David Hare
January 11, 2015 through January 17, 2015
Sunday, Jan 11: 2pm & 7pm - Saturday, Jan 17: 2pm & 7pm - Preview! Sunday, Oct 26: 7pm

Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan feature in the highly anticipated West End production of David Hare’s Skylight, directed by Stephen Daldry, broadcast live from London’s West End by National Theatre Live.

On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan) receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy), a successful and charismatic restaurateur whose wife has recently died. As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires.

Bill Nighy, whose extensive film credits include Love Actually, Notes on a Scandal and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and whose stage roles include Pravda and the world premiere of David Hare’s The Vertical Hour on Broadway, plays alongside Carey Mulligan (Inside Llewyn Davis, The Great Gatsby, An Education) who is making her West End stage debut, and Matthew Beard (An Education, One Day, The Look of Love).

Skylight is directed by Academy Award®-nominated director Stephen Daldry, who recently directed the sell-out West End production of The Audience with Helen Mirren, which was also broadcast to cinemas by National Theatre Live.

David Hare is the author of 29 plays for stage, including Plenty, Racing Demon, Amy’s View, Pravda (with Howard Brenton) and Stuff Happens. His many screenplays include The Hours and The Reader.

Skylight was originally produced at the National Theatre in 1995, before transferring to the West End and Broadway, and won an Olivier Award for Best Play.
