Our Town is a 1938 metatheatrical three-act play by American playwright Thornton Wilder. It tells the story of the fictional American small town of Grover's Corners between 1901 and 1913 through the everyday lives of its citizens. Throughout, Wilder uses metatheatrical devices, setting the play in the actual theatre where it is being performed. The main character is the stage manager of the theatre who directly addresses the audience, brings in guest lecturers, fields questions from the audience, and fills in playing some of the roles. The play is performed without a set on a mostly bare stage. With a few exceptions, the actors mime actions without the use of props.More...
National Theatre Live
National Theatre Live launched in June 2009 with a broadcast of the National Theatre production of Phèdre with Helen Mirren and the Lincoln Theatre has been there from the start. They've since broadcast more than twenty other productions live from the National Theatre, and on occasion other theatres in the UK and we've screened them all.
Past broadcasts include Danny Boyle's Frankenstein with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, One Man, Two Guvnors with James Corden and The Last of the Haussmans with Julie Walters. This past season has included Coriolanus and War Horse and now NT Live has just announced their new season that we are excited to present: The Threepenny Opera, No Man's Land, Amadeus, Saint Joan, and Hedda Gabler.
With The NT announcement of their 2017 season, a number of new events have been earmarked for future NT Live productions including Twelfth Night, Angels in America - Parts I & II and Salomé.
Though each live broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience in the theatre, cameras are carefully positioned throughout the auditorium to ensure that cinema audiences get the 'best seat in the house' view of each production. Where these cameras are placed is different for each broadcast, to make sure that cinema audiences enjoy the best possible experience every time.More...

In the Art Bar: Dee Doyle
“I am happiest when I am creating and sharing through teaching and making art. My personal artistic journey is a series of ‘what ifs’. I choose to push the boundaries in my work, and try new ways to work the paint, whether it’s acrylics, mixed media, watercolors, or encaustics. In my fourth encore career as an art instructor, I paint a wide range of subject matter in various mediums … always trying to impart a personal response to whatever subject happens to show up in the lessons I teach.More...
