National Theatre Live’s fourth season includes:
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Wednesday, October 10, 2012
2 PM and 7 PM
Mark Haddon’s beloved and award-winning novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has been adapted for the stage by Simon Stephen and directed by Marianne Elliot, director of the critically acclaimed War Horse. This intricate examination of the inner workings of a young and extraordinary mind takes us through one boy’s experience of a murder mystery and the frightening journey of everyday life. Simon Stephens’ adaptation offers a richly theatrical exploration of this touching and bleakly humorous best-selling novel.
The Last of the Haussmans
Wednesday, October 24, 2012
2 PM and 7 PM
Stephen Beresford’s new play, The Last of the Haussmans, directed by Howard Davies, examines the fate of the 1960s revolutionary generation and offers a funny, touching, and at times savage portrait of a family full of longing that’s losing its grip. Julie Walters leads an all-star cast as the feisty matriarch of this fragile family.
Timon of Athens
Wednesday, November 28, 2012
2 PM and 7 PM
Simon Russell Beale takes the title role in Timon of Athens, Shakespeare’s strange fable of conspicuous consumption, debt, and ruin, written in collaboration with Thomas Middleton, and directed by Nicholas Hytner. Wealthy friend to the rich and powerful, patron of the arts, and ostentatious host, Timon of Athens is surrounded by freeloaders and sycophants. When he vastly outspends his resources and calls upon his associates, instead of offering help, they hang him out to dry. An angry and vengeful Timon retreats into the wilderness, cursing the morally bankrupt Athens.
