NT LIVE: One Man Two Guvnors
Tuesday, June 21 at 7:00 p.m. local time
(original Fathom
broadcast on October 20, 2012)

Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe
Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000
from his fiancée’s dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as
her own dead brother, who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley
Stubbers. Holed up at The Cricketers’ Arms, the permanently ravenous
Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job
with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to
be re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his
two guvnors apart. Simple.

Featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from host of the “The Late
Late Show,” James Corden, the uproarious “One Man, Two Guvnors” was a
runaway hit both in London’s West End and on Broadway.

NT LIVE: The Audience – Tuesday, July 19 at
7:00 p.m. local time
(original Fathom broadcast on June 25,

For sixty years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her twelve
Prime Ministers in a private weekly meeting. This meeting is known as
The Audience. No one knows what they discuss, not even their spouses.
From the old warrior Winston Churchill, to the Iron Lady Margaret
Thatcher; Tony Blair right up to today’s meetings with the current
incumbent David Cameron, the Queen advises her Prime Ministers on all
matters both public and personal. Through these private audiences, we
see glimpses of the woman behind the crown and witness the moments that
shaped a monarch.

“The Audience” was presented in the West End by Matthew Byam Shaw for
Playful Productions, Robert Fox and Andy Harries. Winner of three Tony
Awards and two Olivier Awards, National Theatre Live’s smash-hit
broadcast of the original West End production of “The Audience” –
featuring Helen Mirren’s multi-award-winning performance as Queen
Elizabeth II – returns to cinemas in celebration of the monarch’s 90th
birthday. Written by Peter Morgan (“The Queen”) and directed by two-time
Tony Award-winner and Academy Award-nominated director Stephen Daldry
(“Billy Elliot,” “The Hours”), this special encore screening includes an
exclusive Q&A with Helen Mirren and director Stephen Daldry.

NT LIVE: Frankenstein – Tuesday, October 25 at
7:00 p.m. local time
(original Fathom broadcast on June 6,

Childlike in his innocence, but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s
bewildered Creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his
horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the
friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to
track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal. Urgent concerns of
scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and
the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and
deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

Directed by Academy Award-winner Danny Boyle (“Trainspotting,” “Slumdog
Millionaire,” “Steve Jobs”), this thrilling production features Olivier
Award winning performances from Benedict Cumberbatch (“BBC’s Sherlock,”
“The Imitation Game”) as the Creature and Jonny Lee Miller (CBS’s
“Elementary,” “Trainspotting”) as Victor Frankenstein. The production
was a sell-out hit at the National Theatre in 2011, and the broadcast
has since become an international sensation, experienced by over half a
million people in cinemas around the world.

NT LIVE: Hamlet – Tuesday, November 15 at 7:00
p.m. local time
(original Fathom broadcast on October 15,

As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to
avenge his father’s death, but paralyzed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages
against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his
sanity and the security of the state.

Academy Award-nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s “Sherlock,” “The
Imitation Game”) takes on the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy.
Directed by Lyndsey Turner (“Posh,” “Chimerica”) and produced by Sonia
Friedman Productions, the original 2015 broadcast was experienced by
over half a million people worldwide.
