The National Theatre will broadcast productions of The Seagull, Othello, and The Crucible in cinemas across the U.K. and internationally as part of National Theatre Live.
Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull, adapted by Anya Reiss for The Jamie Lloyd Company, stars Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) in her West End debut with direction by Jamie Lloyd (Cyrano de Bergerac). The production currently runs at the Harold Pinter Theatre through September 10 and will be broadcast beginning November 3.
“We are so excited to share The Seagull with audiences around the world through National Theatre Live," said Clarke in a statement. "Bringing theatre to a wider audience is incredibly meaningful to me, and I hope you'll join us to see The Seagull unveiled on the big screen this autumn."
Cinema broadcasts will continue with the arrival of Arthur Miller's The Crucible on the big screen January 26, 2023. Erin Doherty (The Crown) and Brendan Cowell (Yerma) star in the production directed by Lyndsey Turner (Hamlet).
Director Clint Dyer's production of Shakespeare's Othello will arrive in cinemas February 23, 2023, starring West End favorite Giles Terera (Hamilton) as Othello, Rosy McEwen (The Alienist) as Desdemona, and Paul Hilton (The Inheritance) as Iago.
National Theatre Live is currently broadcasting productions of Prima Facie, featuring Jodie Comer (Killing Eve), ahead of its Broadway transfer. Much Ado About Nothing will follow beginning September 8, and Jack Absolute Flies Again begins October 6.
