National Theatre Live

NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE

National Theatre Live launched in June 2009 with a broadcast of the National Theatre production of Phèdre with Helen Mirren. We’ve since broadcast more than fourty other productions live, from both the National Theatre and from other theatres around the world.  Our broadcasts have now been experienced by over 5.5 million people in over 2,000 venues around the world.  Exhibition dates and cinema locations are added frequently. In Australia, the plays are captured live in HD, and screened concurrently, where possible, with the London National Theatre season.

Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) makes her West End debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play.

Tessa is a young, brilliant barrister. She has worked her way up from working class origins to be at the top of her game; defending; cross examining and winning. An unexpected event forces her to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morals diverge.
Prima Facie takes us to the heart of where emotion and experience collide with the rules of the game.
Justin Martin directs this solo tour de force, captured live from the intimate Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End.
A production from Empire Street Productions.

Screening Saturday 23 July and Sunday 24 July 2022 at 1.00pm.

Straight Crazy Line 

Ralph Fiennes (NT Live: Antony & Cleopatra) leads the cast in David Hare’s (NT Live: Skylight) blazing account of the most powerful man in New York, a master manipulator whose legacy changed the city forever.

For forty uninterrupted years, Robert Moses exploited those in office through a mix of charm and intimidation. Motivated at first by a determination to improve the lives of New York City’s workers, he created parks, bridges and 627 miles of expressway to connect the people to the great outdoors.

Faced with resistance by protest groups campaigning for a very different idea of what the city should become, will the weakness of democracy be exposed in the face of his charismatic conviction?

Broadcast live from the Bridge Theatre in London, Nicholas Hytner directs this exhilarating new play.

Screening Saturday 17 September and Sunday 18 September 2022 at 1.00pm.
Adults: $25.00, Concessions: $23.00
