DEMENTIA FRIENDLY FILM SCREENING: MEET ME IN ST LOUIS (U)

2 hours 20 minutes (including interval)

Meet Me In St Louis is a delightful, classic, musical film - and one of the greatest musicals ever made, starring Judy Garland. It tells the story of a turn-of-the-century family in suburban, midwestern St. Louis of 1903, who live in a stylish Edwardian home at 5135 Kensington Avenue.

The city, and the well-to-do Smith family (with four beautiful daughters), is on the verge of hosting (and celebrating) the arrival of the spectacular 1904 World’s Fair. However, the family’s head of the house is beckoned to New York due to a job promotion - an uprooting move that threatens to indelibly change the lives of the family members forever. This charming musical features the songs ‘Meet Me In St Louis, Louis’, ‘The Trolley Song’ and ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’.

NT LIVE: YERMA (15)

Encore screening

Recorded live at the Young Vic, London

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.

★★★★★
“Brutal yet ferociously funny”, Metro
★★★★★
“Billie Piper makes a shattering Yerma in Simon Stone’s inspired reworking of Lorca”, The Observer
★★★★★
“A shatteringly powerful reinvention of a familiar classic”, The Independent

MWGSI

ON SALE SOON

This new Welsh language drama from Manon Steffan Ros is a brutally honest and humorous account of the notoriety and loneliness of being a teenager living with cancer. 

Instead of a hell-raising, wine-filled summer with the girls, 18 year old Mwgsi enters a world of chemo, illness and the loneliness of a strange, tragic creature. 

Mwgsi is based on the candid blog by 18 years old Megan Davies who recorded her experiences of teenage life with cancer. 

The tension between Mwgsi, her friends, her family and herself offers a piece of theatre full of dark humour that will force us to confront our own uncertain futures. 

Unsuitable for Under 14s
