    National Theatre Live - Encore
    Les Liaisons Dangereuses

    Thursday 18 February - 7pm
    Doors/Bar Open - 6.30pm

    Following the hugely successful broadcasts of Coriolanus and King Lear, National Theatre Live brings the Donmar Warehouse’s highly anticipated new production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses to cinemas - broadcast live from the Donmar’s London home.

    Directed by Josie Rourke (Coriolanus), the cast includes Elaine Cassidy (The Paradise), Janet McTeer (The White Queen) and Dominic West (The Wire).

    In 1782, Choderlos de Laclos’ novel of sex, intrigue and betrayal in pre-revolutionary France scandalised the world. Two hundred years later, Christopher Hampton's irresistible adaptation swept the board, winning the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Play. Josie Rourke’s revival now marks the play’s thirty year anniversary.

    Former lovers, the Marquise de Merteuil and Vicomte de Valmont now compete in games of seduction and revenge. Merteuil incites Valmont to corrupt the innocent Cecile de Volanges before her wedding night but Valmont has targeted the peerlessly virtuous and beautiful Madame de Tourvel. While these merciless aristocrats toy with others’ hearts and reputations, their own may prove more fragile than they supposed.

    Scaramouche Jones
    Saturday 20 February, 7.45pm

    As the twentieth century ticks away, the mysterious white-faced clown Scaramouche Jones emerges from the circus ring for the very last time. With just an hour remaining before the new millennium, he finally tells of his journey from a Trinidad whore-house to The Big Top.

    Justin Butcher's classic piece of theatre brilliantly weaves the actual events of a century which shaped the word we live in today, with the life story of an extraordinary character. At times hilarious, at times heart-breaking, this award winning production is back for a limited run. So roll up, roll up... come see the clown and discover the secret life story of Scaramouche Jones.

    Whose Life is it Anyway?
    Tuesday 15 - Saturday 19 March, 7.45pm

    Hangmen

    Saturday 26 March - 7pm
    Doors/Bar Open - 6.30pm

    Following a sell-out run at London’s Royal Court Theatre, Olivier and Academy Award® winner Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman, The Cripple of Irishman, In Bruges) returns to the West End with Matthew Dunster’s award-winning production of his deeply funny new play Hangmen, broadcast live to cinemas by National Theatre Live.

    In his small pub in the northern English town of Oldham, Harry (David Morrissey – The Walking Dead, State of Play) is something of a local celebrity. But what's the second-best hangman in England to do on the day they've abolished hanging?

    Amongst the cub reporters and pub regulars dying to hear Harry’s reaction to the news, his old assistant Syd (Andy Nyman – Peaky Blinders, Death at a Funeral) and the peculiar Mooney (Johnny Flynn – Clouds of Sils Maria) lurk with very different motives for their visit.
