London Road: the film – National Theatre

LondonRoad_Poster_NoTitle_100315We will be showing the premiere of the feature film adaptation of London Road live from the National Theatre at 6:45pm on Tuesday June 9th 2015.

The evening will feature an exclusive Q&A with the key cast and crew following the screening of the film.

Hailed as a remarkable, ground-breaking work during two sell-out runs at the National Theatre, the feature film adaptation of London Road reunites the award winning team, with script by Alecky Blythe, music by Adam Cork and directed by Rufus Norris (Broken).

With an ensemble cast that includes Olivia Colman, Kate Fleetwood, Anita Dobson and Tom Hardy, London Road documents the events that shook Suffolk in 2006, when the quiet rural town of Ipswich was shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women. The residents of London Road had struggled for years with frequent soliciting and kerb-crawling on their street.

The film follows the community who found themselves at the epicentre of the tragic events, and is based on interviews conducted with the road’s real residents. Using their own words set to an innovative musical score, London Road tells a moving story of ordinary people coming together during the darkest of experiences.

Running time: 2h 15mins.

Please arrive by 6.15pm to register and to order interval drinks if you wish.
