South Bank, London, SE1 9PX
One of the South Bank's most memorable buildings, The National Theatre is London's cultural hub for the theatrical arts, housing three auditoriums that continually strive to present the best in innovation and talent alongside showcasing classic and new works. Finished in 1977, the brutalist concrete building's architecture has many naysayers but twice as many admirers, and has been Grade II listed since 1994. Many incredible works have benefited from their National Theatre patronage, including the recent successes of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, One Man Two Guvnors and the groundbreaking War Horse.

Anne-Marie Duff delivers an astoundingly chilling performance in this new play from DC Moore that explores the wilds of England in 1809 when the country was on the cusp of Enclosure, a concept that would alter the landscape and its people evermore. Darkly comic with moments of genuine terror, Duff plays Mary, a devious rogue who returns to her roots seeking sweetly earned revenge.

Part of the National Theatre's drive in 2017/18 to feature equality in voices on stage, Rob Drummond returns to the stage with a brand-new show that explores democracy in a one-man format. Famed for his infamous show Bullet Catch, in which he displayed the most deadly "magic trick" in stage history on a nightly basis, Drummond's new target, forgive the pun, is in fact about politics within democratic society. It may not contain the danger of a bullet catch, but Drummond assures us that it will be thrilling and thoughtworthy!
