NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE: SMALL ISLAND (170 mins)
Thursday June 27, 7:30pm, booking now
Andrea Levy’s Orange Prize-winning novel Small Island comes to life in an epic new theatre adaptation filmed live on stage as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday. Small Island embarks on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, through the second world war to 1948 – the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury. The play follows three intricately connected stories. Hortense yearns for a new life away from rural Jamaica, Gilbert dreams of becoming a lawyer, and Queenie longs to escape her Lincolnshire roots. Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history of Jamaica and the UK.

ROYAL BALLET ENCORE: ROMEO AND JULIET (2019)
Monday July 1 at 7:15pm, booking now
Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic. The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end. Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets. Starring Yasmine Naghdi as Juliet and Matthew Bourne as Romeo.
