National Theatre Live - Small Island
adapted by Helen Edmundson
based on the novel by Andrea Levy

Andrea Levy’s Orange Prize-winning novel Small Island comes to life in an epic new theatre adaptation. Experience the play in cinemas, filmed live on stage as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.

Small Island embarks on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, through the Second World War to 1948 –the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury. The play follows three intricately connected stories. Hortense yearns for a new life away from rural Jamaica, Gilbert dreams of becoming a lawyer, and Queenie longs to escape her Lincolnshire roots.

Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history of Jamaica and the UK. A company of 40 actors take to the stage of the National Theatre in this timely and moving story.

The Lehman Trilogy by Stefano Massini, adapted by Ben Power directed by Sam Mendes

The story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening.

Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall, The Ferryman) directs Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles who play the Lehman Brothers, their sons and grandsons.

On a cold September morning in 1844 a young man from Bavaria stands on a New York dockside. Dreaming of a new life in the new world. He is joined by his two brothers and an American epic begins. 163 years later, the firm they establish – Lehman Brothers – spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy, and triggers the largest financial crisis in history.

This critically acclaimed and five-time Olivier Award-nominated play features stunning set design from Es Devlin (NT Live: Hamlet) and will be broadcast live from London’s West End as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th Birthday season.

Their back – and better than ever!

The Playhouse welcomes back “The One and Only Rat Pack Show!”

Neil Gordon has performed as Frank Sinatra on stage in London’s West End Show as well as many theatres throughout the UK and worldwide.

Neil Duncan has also toured the UK with ‘The Rat Pack’ and truly captures the voice, mannerisms and mischief of Dean Martin.

Darren Charles, a trained actor and dancer uses these qualities to re create an incredible tribute to Sammy Davis Jnr. Darren has also appeared in the West End’s Rat Pack Show on numerous occasions.

The show is fully supported by a fabulous six piece swing band under the musical direction of the very talented Mr. Toby Cruse.

In the fifties and sixties these three cool dudes ruled the roost in the entertainment capitol - Las Vegas.

Whether it’s Everybody Love Somebody, Mr Bojangles, Strangers in the Night or New York, New York, this superb show has them all and truly captures the stage presence, comedy timing and great voices of Frank, Dean and Sammy at their very best!

This play is entered in the Kent Drama Festiv

A Lindley Players Production
 
Thursday 19th - Saturday 21st September, 7:45pm
It's 11pm on Millennium Eve. The ancient clown, Scaramouche Jones, has given his last performance and retires to his dressing room to wait alone for the stroke of midnight - and his own centenary.

Reflecting on the extraordinary fortunes of his life, his journey spans the furthest reaches of crumbling empires and the darkest episodes of the 20th century in his quest for a father and a homeland. He strips away his seven comic masks and reveals the heart buried deep within: his final confession.

By turns bizarre, comic, epic, tragic - laced with the consummate wit of the circus clown - his tale unfolds as an enchanting fable of poignancy and laughter. "Powerful, imaginative and marvellously written . . . an extraordinary and original creation" - Sir Paul Scofield

Frankenstein
 
A Lindley Players Production
 
Wednesday 23rd - Saturday 26th October, 7:45pm
Slowly I learnt the ways of humans: how to ruin, how to hate, how to debase, how to humiliate. And at the feet of my master I learnt the highest of human skills, the skill no other creature owns: I finally learnt how to lie.

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.

Frankenstein, based on the novel by Mary Shelley, premiered at the National Theatre, London, in February 2011.

One Man, Two Guvnors by Richard Bean based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni, with songs by Grant Olding

Featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from host of the The Late Late Show, James Corden, the hilarious West End and Broadway hit One Man, Two Guvnors returns to cinemas to mark National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.

Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancée’s dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers.

Holed up at The Cricketers’ Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.
