  • NT Live: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (Captured Live)

    Tennessee Williams’ twentieth century masterpiece Cat on a Hot Tin Roof played a strictly limited season in London’s West End in 2017. Following his smash hit production of A Streetcar Named Desire, Benedict Andrews’ ‘thrilling revival’ (New York Times) stars Sienna Miller alongside, Jack O’Connell and Colm Meaney. On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real – and which will win out? ★★★★ "A bold reimagining…innovative and powerfully acted" Sunday Times ★★★★ "A brilliant, lacerating account of the play… unforgettable" The Independent

  • Messiah from Bristol Old Vic

    Inspired by Handel’s profound religious masterpiece, this acclaimed Bristol Old Vic production provides a rare chance to experience a powerfully dramatic account of Messiah and to rediscover the intense spirituality of its many well-known arias and choruses.  Staged by the Tony Award-winning director Tom Morris (War Horse), this extraordinary production features Europe’s most celebrated Baroque orchestra The English Concert, the magnificent Erebus Ensemble and a cast of internationally-renowned soloists. The story explores the drama and struggle of faith, showing a group of people whose grief at the loss of their leader is transformed into hope through a narrative of resurrection. Through their despair, the Apostles gradually realise their mission is to redeem the world by sharing the story of Jesus’s life and death with all humanity. Described by the critics as an ‘astonishingly beautiful’ (The Stage),‘direct and impactful interpretation’ (The Times), this dramatised concert is a rare treat for connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike.
