Salomé (2017) <h4>National Theatre Live</h4>
 

The story has been told before, but never like this. An occupied desert nation. A radical from the wilderness on hunger strike. A girl whose mysterious dance will change the course of the world. This charged retelling turns the infamous biblical tale on its head, placing the girl we call Salomé at the center of a revolution. Internationally acclaimed theatre director Yaël Farber (Les Blancs) draws on multiple accounts to create her urgent, hypnotic production on the stage of the National Theatre.

Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead (2017)<h4> National Theatre Live</h4>
 

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, The Woman in Black), Joshua McGuire (The Hour), and David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Witness for the Prosecution) star in Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny situation comedy, at The Old Vic theatre in London. David Leveaux’s new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight. Against the backdrop of Hamlet, two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take center stage. As the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of Shakespeare’s iconic drama, they become increasingly out of their depth as their version of the story unfolds.

Yerma (2017)<h4> National Theatre Live</h4>
 

The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece. The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it "an extraordinary theatrical triumph" (The Times) and "stunning, searing, unmissable" (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as "spellbinding" (The Evening Standard), "astonishing" (iNews), and "devastatingly powerful" (The Daily Telegraph). Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her 30s desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax.
