A Regular Little Houdini 9th September
Saturday 9 September, 8pm

Picture of A Regular Little  Houdini

 

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.

"An extraordinary tale of hope, determination & magic!" An Edinburgh Sell Out.

"A cracker!" Western Mail

"Spellbinding" San Diego Union Tribune

Picture of National Theatre Live: Yerma (12A)

 

Times:
Thu 14th Sep 19:00

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. 

The performance of Yerma includes strobe lighting.

Tickets: £17.50

Fri 8th Dec 19:00

Rory Kinnear is Marx and Oliver Chris is Engels, in this brilliant new comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman.

It’s 1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke and restless, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy. Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective love rivals all circle like vultures, but there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night out than Karl Heinrich Marx.

Running time: 1hr 40 mins inc. interval

Tickets: £17.50
