Present Laughter

By: Noël Coward
Directed by: Matthew Warchus

'★ ★ ★ ★ ★'
'​​Illuminating and luminously funny’ —WhatsOnStage

Matthew Warchus directs Andrew Scott (Vanya, All of Us Strangers, Fleabag) in Noël Coward’s provocative comedy
Present Laughter.

As he prepares to embark on an overseas tour, star actor Garry Essendine’s colourful life is in danger of spiralling out of control. Engulfed by an escalating identity crisis as his many and various relationships compete for his attention, Garry’s few remaining days at home are a chaotic whirlwind of love, sex, panic and soul-searching.

Captured live from The Old Vic in London, Present Laughter is a giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness.

King Lear

By William Shakespeare

'★ ★ ★ ★ ★'
'​​Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production.’ —Daily Telegraph

Broadcast live from London’s West End, see Ian McKellen’s ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’
(Independent) of King Lear in cinemas.

Chichester Festival Theatre’s production received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers
to the West End for a limited season. Jonathan Munby directs this ‘nuanced and powerful’ (The
Times)
contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’ s tender, violent, moving and shocking play.

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one
a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a
tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power
struggle with bitter ends.

NTL 2023 Fleabag - Listing Image - Landscape .jpg

Fleabag

Written and Performed by: Phoebe Waller-Bridge
Directed by Vicky Jones

'★ ★ ★ ★ ★'
'​​Filthy, funny, snarky and touching.’ —Daily Telegraph

See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series Fleabag, broadcast live to cinemas from London’s West End. 

Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, this 67 minute play is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life.

Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.

Prima Facie

Prima Facie

Written by: Susie Miller
Directed by Justin Martin

'​​Jodie Comer is a tour de force.’ —Financial Times

Jodie Comer’s (Killing Eve) Olivier and Tony Award-winning performance in Suzie Miller’s gripping one-woman play returns to cinemas. 

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.
