AN IDEAL HUSBAND (Theatre from London) – Sun (Nov 11) 2pm

OSCAR WILDE

Genre: Comedy/Stage  
Runtime: 2 hrs 40 min approx
Rated: PG

Stars: Edward Fox, Freddie Fox, Frances Barber, Sally Bretton, Nathaniel Parker, Susan Hampshire
Director: Jonathan Church

Synopsis: A new production of the Rolls-Royce of English comedies, Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband, filmed live at the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End, is coming to the big screen. Directed by Jonathan Church, this entertaining and still topical play brings an act of political sin into the heart of the English home. As an ambitious government minister, Sir Robert Chiltern’s smooth ascent to the top seems assured until Mrs Cheveley appears in London with damning proof of his previous financial chicanery. The talented ensemble cast includes real-life father and son Edward (The Audience, West End; The Day of the Jackal, ITV) and Freddie Fox (The Judas Kiss, West End; Cucumber & Banana, Channel 4; E4), Olivier Award-nominated Frances Barber (Silk, BBC; Antony and Cleopatra, Shakespeare’s Globe), Olivier Award-winner Nathaniel Parker (This House, West End; Wolf Hall, West End & Broadway), Sally Bretton (Not Going Out, BBC; King Lear, Shakespeare’s Globe) and Susan Hampshire (Forsyte Saga, Monarch of the Glen, BBC).

All National Theatre tickets are $15 each and are available at the box office on the day of the show.


KING LEAR (Theatre from London) – Sun (Dec 2) 2pm

Genre: Drama/Stage
Runtime: 2 hrs, 40 min approx
Rated: TBA

Stars: Ian McKellen   
Director: Jonathan Munby

Synopsis: 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.

All National Theatre Series tickets are $15 each and are available at the box office on the day of the show.
