    Salomé

    125 mins | As Live 15

    The story has been told before, but never like this. An occupied desert nation. A radical from the wilderness on hunger strike. A girl whose mysterious dance will change the course of the world.

    This charged retelling turns the infamous biblical tale on its head, placing the girl we call Salomé at the centre of a revolution.

    Internationally acclaimed theatre director Yaël Farber (Les Blancs) draws on multiple accounts to create her urgent, hypnotic production which will be broadcast live from the stage of the National Theatre. ‘Epic. A near-perfect production.’ Guardian (on Les Blancs )

    Yerma (Encore) As Live 15

     

    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
