The Beaux’ Stratagem – National Theatre

The_Beaux_Stratagem_poster_notitleWe will be showing The Beaux’ Stratagem live from the National Theatre, London at 7pm on Thursday 3rd September 2015.

The ‘Beaux’: Mr Aimwell and Mr Archer, two charming, dissolute young men who have blown their fortunes in giddy London. Shamed and debt-ridden, they flee to provincial Lichfield. Their ‘Stratagem’: to marry for money.

Lodged at the local inn, posing as master and servant, they encounter a teeming variety of human obstacles: a crooked landlord, a fearsome highwayman, a fervent French Count, a maid on the make, a drunken husband, a furious butler, a natural healer and a strange, turbulent priest.

But their greatest obstacle is love. When the Beaux meet their match in Dorinda and Mrs Sullen they are most at risk, for in love they might be truly discovered.

‘Fresh and assured. This Restoration comedy has japes aplenty. Winning performances from Susannah Fielding and Geoffrey Streatfeild.’
Evening Standard

‘Exuberant. Deliciously modern. This Restoration romp is a lot of fun.’
Time Out

‘An English comedy that moves from Restoration mode into a new age, and Simon Godwin and his cast work it beautifully. Samuel Barnett is perfectly cast as Aimwell.’
Financial Times

‘Exhilarating. Simon Godwin’s production maintains a perfect balance between serious comment and exuberant fun.’
Guardian

Doors open at 6.30 – please arrive in time to register and order interval drinks before the performance commences.

Everyman – National Theatre

Everyman

We will be showing Everyman live from the National Theatre, London at 7pm on Thursday 16th July 2015.

BAFTA winner and Academy Award® nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) takes the title role in this dynamic new production of one of English drama’s oldest plays, directed by the National Theatre’s new Director Rufus Norris (Broken, London Road).

Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to abandon the life he has built and embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence. But Death is close behind, and time is running out.

One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, it now explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos.

Doors open at 6.30 – please arrive in time to register and order interval drinks before the performance commences.

The George Inn serves meals – please contact them directly on 01298 871382 if you would like to book a pre-show meal.
