July and Autumn Screenings at Sawston Cinema

Skylight (NT Live)

Our NTLive screenings continue in July with Skylight (NTLive) on Thursday 17th at 7.00pm
Bill Nighy (Love Actually, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and Carey Mulligan (Inside Llewyn Davis, The Great  Gatsby) feature in the highly anticipated production of David Hare’s Skylight, directed by Stephen Daldry (The  Audience), broadcast live from the West End by National Theatre Live.

On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan) receives an unexpected visit from her  former lover, Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy), a successful and charismatic restaurateur whose wife has recently died.
As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship only to find themselves  locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires.

Then after the summer break returns on September 4th with Medea (NT Live) Medea (NT Live) LIVE
Helen McCrory (The Last of the Haussmans) returns to the National Theatre to  take the title role in Euripides’ powerful tragedy, in a new version by Ben Power, directed by Carrie Cracknell.

Medea is a wife and a mother. For the sake of her husband, Jason, she’s left her home and borne two sons in exile. But when he abandons his family for a new life, Medea faces banishment and separation from her children. Cornered, she begs for one day’s grace.

It’s time enough. She exacts an appalling revenge and destroys everything she holds dear.
