A piercing look at power and family.

Roger Allam (Les Misérables, The Thick of It) returns to the National for the first time in a decade to play Rutherford in this new production directed by Polly Findlay (Beginning).

In a Northern industrial town, John Rutherford rules both factory and family with an iron will. But even as the furnaces burn relentlessly at the Glassworks, at home his children begin to turn against him.

Githa Sowerby’s astonishing play was inspired by her own experience of growing up in a family-run factory in Gateshead. Writing in 1912, when female voices were seldom heard on British stages, she now claims her place alongside Ibsen and Bernard Shaw with this searing depiction of class, gender and generational warfare.

Equus caused a scandal on TV in the 1970s. It's a 1973 drama by Peter Shaffer about a psychiatrist treating a young man who has a dark religious fascination with horses. It has just enjoyed a five star run at the Theatre Royal Stratford East, followed by a national tour, and now it's transferring to the Trafalgar Studios. It's quite remarkable. Come and see it.

Head for the gorgeous Duke of York's theatre for a classic play written more than 150 years ago. It still has teeth, still has the ability to shock and delight. Some say Rosmersholm is only equalled by Ibsen's 1884 play, The Wild Duck.

Actually

Trafalgar Studio Two

Tickets from £23.75

Amber and Tom are in the first year at their elite American university. Their paths cross and they connect in ways that seem innocent enough at first. But after they hook up at a party and spend the night together things start to become more clouded. They agree on the drinking, they agree on the attraction, but what actually happened between them?

This deeply felt, funny and thought-provoking play comes from the award-winning playwright Anna Ziegler (Photograph 51). With wit and urgency, ACTUALLY investigates the highly charged topic of sexual consent, the complex intersection of race and gender politics, our crippling desire to fit in, and the three sides to every story.

Amid the rubble of the old politics a populist King rose to power, promising a return to England’s golden age. But now he is dead, murdered; and in the following bloodbath his brother has seized the throne.  

A masked figure has been seen, stalking the shadows. There is whisper of a resistance, gathering in the dark.

To be or not to be, that is the question - but can the nation’s heir, Hamlet, find the answers?

Uphold the state; or join the rebels?

Be ready to choose in this thrilling contemporary production of Shakespeare’s greatest play.

Best remembered for playing Mr Banks in Disney's classic film Mary Poppins, David Tomlinson was renowned for playing the classic English gent, forthright, proper, and a loveable fool. His meeting with Walt Disney came to encapsulate his incredible life full of adventure and heartbreak.

The man who portrayed one of cinema's most famous patriarchs was defined by his relationship with his own father - a remote eccentric, who was hiding an extraordinary tragicomic secret.

THE LIFE I LEAD sees Miles Jupp, one of Britain's leading comics and actors (Mock the Week, The News Quiz, Rev, The Durrells) bring David Tomlinson's remarkable story to life.

A richly comic and moving tale of fathers and sons across the generations, THE LIFE I LEAD fills in the blanks behind a very well-known face.

Wyndham's Theatre

The scene is Vienna, the date is 1900. At the time the city was a vibrant centre of the arts, a creative hub, a vivid place where intellectual exploration was the nborm, a city of joy and pleasure. One in ten of the people were Jewish, given civil full rights by the Emperor Franz Josef. As a result of the Emperor's edict Jewish people streamed into the city, escaping from violence elsewhere in the world. Thousands of them settled in the tenement houses of the ancient Jewish quarter, an area called Leopoldstadt. And that's the location for this extraordinary play, a brand new masterwork by Tom Stoppard.
