You don't have to fly off to London to see one of the National Theatre's most acclaimed recent works. As part of the ongoing NTLive series, where the renowned theater company's productions are rebroadcast around the world, you'll see the beautiful and imaginative stage adaptation of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. This big screen version gives you a sneak preview of the play before the live version opens on Broadway next season. In the hands of the National Theatre, Mark Haddon's celebrated novel comes to life in an exceptionally heartfelt production. The story follows the fascinating story of Christopher, a 15-year-old living with autism and struggling with the subtle yet powerful effects of a divorce that he cannot comprehend. One night, Christopher finds himself suspected of a heinous crime. Though he avoids and detests human contact, he uses his keen analytical mind to attempt a solution to the mystery and clear his name, even though he's been strictly forbidden by his father to do so. What follows is a harrowing journey that upturns his world and exposes him to the emotional dimensions that he fears so much. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Whether contemplating the contents of gilded chests or the darkest corners of human nature, The Merchant of Venice challenges audiences to look beyond misleading appearances to find the true measure of things. An intriguing story of power and revenge, justice and mercy, true love and duplicity, features some of Shakespeare’s most complex and memorable characters.
Staged at STC for the first time in over a decade, The Merchant of Venice is directed by Ethan McSweeny, whose “posh production” of Major Barbara was hailed by The Washington Post as “dandy…light itself.”
