NT LIVE

Starts tomorrow – advance tickets available!

Angelika Dallas: Oct 7th & Oct 8th
Angelika Plano: Oct 11 & Oct 12
Angelika Houston
: Oct 16 & Oct 17

Shakespeareâ??s ALLâ??S WELL THAT ENDS WELL, in a highly acclaimed production by Marianne Elliott, will be filmed live at the National Theatre in London and broadcast by satellite to cinemas worldwide.  ALLâ??S WELL is the second play in the pilot season of NT Live, the Nationalâ??s ground-breaking initiative which launched in June with the hugely successful broadcast of Phèdre with Helen Mirren, seen by 50,000 people in 19 countries around the globe.

Set against a background of sexism, snobbery and a battle between the generations, ALLâ??S WELL THAT ENDS WELL turns fairytale logic on its head in a wondrous, bittersweet story.   The feisty but lowly Helena (Michelle Terry) falls in love with Bertram (George Rainsford), a haughty count.  To gain his hand she is set a string of impossible tasks.  Nevertheless, our heroine, whether wisely or no, refuses to give him up.
