WONDER WOMAN (12a)

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

10cc’s GRAHAM GOULDMAN & HEART FULL OF SONGS

Graham Gouldman formed what became Heart Full of Songs six years ago, purely for the pleasure of playing his songs in their simplest form, acoustically.

Backed by fellow 10cc band members and opening the show at 10cc concerts, Graham performed a selection of the hits he’d written for other artistes. His compositions include ‘I’m Not In Love’, ‘Dreadlock Holiday’ and ‘The Things We Do For Love’ for 10cc, ‘Bus Stop’ and ‘Look Through Any Window’ for The Hollies, ‘For Your Love’ for The Yardbirds and ‘No Milk Today’ for Herman’s Hermits.

The format became so popular that it adopted a name and undertook its first stand-alone concert tour in April-May 2013, touring again the following year. 10cc’s success over the past four years has been such that the first opportunity for Heart Full of Songs to tour again and he’s heading for Colwyn Bay!

Much has happened for Graham since he last took Heart Full of Songs, now a three-piece featuring Iain Hornal and Ciaran Jeremiah, on the road. His status as one of the world’s leading songwriters was acknowledged with his induction into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame – an arm of America’s National Academy of Music – at a special ceremony in New York.

Previous inductees include Noel Coward, Irving Berlin, Burt Bacharach, Neil Sedaka, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Leonard Cohen and Sting. America’s Broadcast Music Incorporated followed suit and anointed him an Icon of the Industry at a special ceremony in London, where he stunned the audience with an acoustic rendition of I’m Not In Love, accompanied by Lisa Stansfield on vocals.

MWGSI

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
