We have an exciting new development in our next season at RFT: we are now able to show National Theatre productions live via a satellite link to our screen in G10. Our new NT at RFT season will start on Thursday May 1st with Sam Mendes’ King Lear starring Simon Russell Beale in the title role. On Thursday May 22nd we will be showing The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (Encore) based on the acclaimed novel by Mark Haddon and on Thursday June 12th A Small Family Business by Alan Ayckbourn. Ticket prices for these special events will be £12.50 or £10.50 for members and concessions. These events are likely to be popular and early booking is recommended.
Our new season of films started last week with three consecutive nights of great entertainment. Those of you following news of the forthcoming awards will have noticed that many of the films being shown this season at RFT have been nominated for awards; Philomena, The Lady in Number 6, Gravity, Captain Phillips, Nebraska, Saving Mr Banks, The Invisible Woman and 12 Years a Slave have all been nominated for Oscar or Bafta awards, along with several of the films shown in our last season. If you are looking at new ways to brighten up your room you may be interested to know that we are currently selling posters from all the films shown over the last few years at RFT. For more information please email us or ask at the Box Office.
