All children, except one, grow up…

Captured in front of a live audience at the National Theatre, a recorded performance of JM Barrie’s much-loved tale screens in cinemas this summer.

When Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow, headstrong Wendy helps him to reattach it. In return, she is invited to Neverland, where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook await. A riot of magic, music and make-believe ensues.

A delight for children and adults alike, Sally Cookson (NT Live: Jane Eyre) directs this wondrously inventive production, a co-production with Bristol Old Vic theatre.

Times:
Sat 9th Sep 20:00

The scene, Edwardian Newport, South Wales: A dockworker's son, smitten by Harry Houdini, dreams of a life of magic, to unlock his shackles and his brutal Welsh working-class reality.

With his head full of folly, his parents struggle with their son’s eccentricity, but, he doggedly trains himself to emulate his hero on the industrial detritus in the bustling docks, and his relentless ambition finally brings him face-to-face with the world’s greatest showman - along with one of the most terrifying events in British industrial history.

Is it possible to follow one’s dreams in a world where poverty weighs you down like mud? An enchanting story that blurs the lines between childhood imagination and the cynicism of adulthood.

The show has won a string of awards: Best solo show, San Diego Festival; Artistic Excellence Award, Best Actor and Encore Producers awards, Hollywood Festival:  Best actor in the English language in the Wales Theatre Awards 2015. 

A Regular Little Houdini was a Pick of the Edinburgh Fringe.

The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece.

The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times) and ‘stunning, searing, unmissable’ (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as ‘spellbinding’ (The Evening Standard), ‘astonishing’ (iNews) and ‘devastatingly powerful’ (The Daily Telegraph).

Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax.

Please note that this broadcast does not have an interval.
