ROMEO AND JULIET
Doors open 19:30, performance at 20:00.
Romeo and Juliet risk everything to be together. In defiance of their feuding families, they chase a future of joy and passion as violence erupts around them.
This bold new film brings to life the remarkable backstage spaces of the National Theatre in which desire, dreams and destiny collide to make Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy sing in an entirely new way.
Jessie Buckley (Wild Rose, Judy) and Josh O’Connor (The Crown, God’s Own Country) play Juliet and Romeo. The award-winning cast includes Tamsin Greig, Fisayo Akinade, Adrian Lester, Lucian Msamati, Deborah Findlay.

Lebanon 2018; Arabic with English subtitles; Director Nadine Labaki
12 year old Zain lives with his neglectful parents in Beirut; they can barely afford to feed themselves, trapped by their circumstances. Zain is more of a fighter and he runs away from home. On the street, he battles the hazards of shantytowns, souks, prisons and betrayals with wily, angry energy, living by his wits, but with an inner moral decency. He befriends a mother and becomes a surrogate brother to her 2 year old – in what must be one of the greatest infant performances in cinema. The storytelling has a lyricism and a humour that contrasts with the grimness of the circumstances; it is one of the best depictions of how street kids learn to survive, despite deprivation and neglect. It is angry, but with enough humour and tenderness to catch your heart.
We would still be pleased if you booked here, although you are also welcome just to turn up. The usual donation applies; masks are still requested and we will seat you gently socially distanced!
