NT Live: Straight Line Crazy

NT Live: Straight Line Crazy

Ralph Fiennes (Anthony & Cleopatra) leads the cast in David Hare's (Skylight) blazing account of the most powerful man in New York, a master manipulator whose legacy changed the city forever.


For forty uninterrupted years, Robert Moses exploited those in office through a mix of charm and intimidation. Motivated at first by a determination to improve the lives of New York City's workers, he created parks, bridges and 627 miles of expressway to connect the people to the great outdoors.


Faced with resistance by protest groups campaigning for a very different idea of what the city should become, will the weakness of democracy be exposed in the face of his charismatic convicition?


Broadcast live from the Bridge Theatre in London, Nicholas Hytner directs this exhilarating new play.

Soveida Ensemble Presents Concert supporting Ukrainian Refugees

Soveida Ensemble Presents Concert supporting Ukrainian Refugees

The Soveida Ensemble was first established in 2014.

Based on a long since forgotten form of Classical Persian music, the Soveida Ensemble performs on some of the oldest instruments created by man, including the Tanbour, Setar, Tar, Daf, Tombak and Ney.


This particular style of music called Taghti’i-Igha’i was formulated and classified for the first time about seven centuries ago by Safie-Din Ormavi and Hafez Marâghi, and was spread throughout Iran and India by Shâh Ne’matollâh Vali.


This style of music is a rendition of ancient rhythms that have been passed down from one generation to another, from teacher to student, over thousands of years.


Even though these rhythms have been employed in the East for centuries, the Soveida Ensemble is the first group who has presented them in a concert format for the benefit of a Western audience. For this reason, it brings us a unique opportunity to experience the only group playing this specific strain of Classical Persian music in the world.

The Soveida Ensemble has been welcomed by audiences in Germany, France, Belgium, Sweden and across the UK.


The songs are especially selected and composed based on poems by Rumi, Hafez and Saadi, around the message of humanity and unity.

NT Live: Prima Facie

Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) makes her West End debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play.


Tessa is a young, brilliant barrister. She has worked her way up from working class origins to be at the top of her game; defending; cross examining and winning. An unexpected event forces her to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morals diverge.


Prima Facie takes us to the heart of where emotion and experience collide with the rules of the game.


Justin Martin directs this solo tour de force, captured live from the intimate Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End.
