Thursday16Jul

NT Live
Everyman

BAFTA winner and Academy Award® nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) takes the title role in this dynamic new production of one of English drama’s oldest plays, directed by the National Theatre’s new Director Rufus Norris (Broken, London Road). Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to abandon the life he has built and embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence. But Death is close behind, and time is running out. One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, it now explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos.

Royal Shakespeare Company
The Merchant of Venice

In the melting pot of Venice, trade is God. With its ships plying the globe, the city opens its arms to all, as long as they come prepared to do business and there is profit to be made. With the gold flowing all is well, but when a contract between Bassanio and Shylock is broken, simmering racial tensions boil ove. A wronged fathe, and despised outside, Shylock looks to exact the ultimate price for a deal sealed in blood. Polly Findlay (Arden of Faversham 2014) directs Shakespeare's uncompromising tragedy.

Upcoming Films


Thursday28May

Birdman (15)

A hugely inventive black comedy about a fading Hollywood star Riggan Thomson (Keaton), who is struggling to mount a Broadway play while suffering a midlife meltdown. As opening night looms, the lead actress (Watts) brings in her lover, Mike (Norton), an egotistical ‘method’ actor who further disrupts an already unstable production. The camera twists and turns around the maze-like corridors of a Broadway theatre at whirlwind pace, driving the story forward as Riggan battles to resurrect his family, his career, and himself. Endlessly creative, often hilarious and featuring a career-best performance from Keaton, Birdman is a dazzling display of virtuoso cinema.

Wild (15)

Raw from her recent divorce Cheryl (Witherspoon) rashly sets off on a solo marathon hike along the fabulously beautiful Pacific Crest Trail. She’s forced to spend time alone remembering her inspiring mother, Bobbi (Dern), and her own years of reckless, destructive behavior. Witherspoon carries the whole movie (and a huge backpack) with unflagging intensity and remarkable verve. This powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman driven by sheer determination on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.

Selma (12a)

1965, Selma, a small town in Alabama, becomes the focal point of a march for the right to vote led by Dr. Martin Luther King that meets bloody resistance at the hands of the authorities. This is pitch-perfect in its details, thrusting you directly into a world of rolled-up shirtsleeves, stifling heat, and police rampages. Oyelowo is utterly convincing throughout, uniting crowds with his gripping oratory, and even better in quieter moments where we see the flawed man’s fragility. This works brilliantly as expert historical re-creation and also as powerful reflection on both how far we’ve come and how much we have still to do to tackle racism today.
