Reunited on stage, David Tennant and Catherine Tate appear together on stage for the first time in William Shakespeare's timeless comedy Much Ado About Nothing.
Two young lovers, Claudio and Hero, are to be married imminently but the devious scheming of a resentful Prince looks set to thwart the nuptials. Meanwhile, marriage seems inconceivable for reluctant lovers Beatrice and Benedick whose endless witty sparring threatens to keep them apart forever.
Directed by Josie Rourke, Artistic Director of the Donmar Warehouse, Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare's great plays and reminds us all of the failings and triumphs of the human condition in our never ending search for perfect love.
The Almeida's Artistic Director, Michael Attenborough, brings Shakespeare's greatest tragedy to the intimacy of the Almeida stage.
When Lear asks each of his daughters to profess their love for him, he is flattered by the false hyperbole of Regan and Goneril. When his youngest daughter Cordelia confesses to love him simply as a daughter should, his pride is dented and he casts her out of his kingdom.
Too late to realise his mistake, and forced from power by his offspring, an increasingly impotent and frail Lear descends into madness.
Award-winning actor Jonathan Pryce plays the title role in a production that formed part of the World Shakespeare Festival in 2012.
Digital Theatre is delighted to announce the upcoming release of Jonathan Harvey's landmark play, Beautiful Thing, captured live during its acclaimed West End run at the Arts Theatre in May 2013.
The production is coming soon to Digital Theatre.
Celebrating its twentieth anniversary year, Beautiful Thing also travelled to Liverpool Playhouse and West Yorkshire Playhouse, completing its national tour at the Theatre Royal, Brighton on Saturday (15 June 2013).
Directed by Nikolai Foster and with designs by Colin Richmond, the production stars Suranne Jones, Zaraah Abrahams and Oliver Farnworth, with Jake Davies and Danny-Boy Hatchard as Jamie and Ste.
Beautiful Thing is a glorious urban love story between two young men set on an inner city housing estate. It tells the story of teenager Jamie's relationship with classmate and neighbour Ste. Together the two boys find comedy, warmth and the music of Mama Cass through their loud-mouthed next door neighbour Leah. The play exquisitely depicts what it is to be sixteen, in the first flush of love, and full of optimism.
Beautiful Thing was produced in the West End and on tour by Tom O'Connell for QNQ Ltd.
