Translations

National Theatre, Olivier

Until December 18, 2019

The National Theatre brings back their exquisite revival of Brian Friel's modern classic following it's sell-out success last year. Starring Ciaran Hinds and Fra Free and directed by Ian Rickson, Translations transports us to Donegal in 1833 where a team of English soldiers set out to trace the area for the first Ordnance Survey Map, in the process replacing the traditional Irish place names with standardised English. What begins as an administrative effort soon becomes a battle of culture and language, mirroring the fraught tension between the two countries.

Master Harold and the Boys

National Theatre, Lyttelton

Until December 17, 2019

Initially banned in his home country upon its release in the early 80s, South African protest playwright Athol Fugard's seminal work Master Harold and the Boys is currently receiving rave reviews at the National Theatre Lyttleton. Helmed by up and coming young director Roy Alexander Weise, the thought-provoking three-hander stars Lucian Msamati (Amadeus), Hammed Animashaun (Barber Shop Chronicles) and Anson Boon (The Winter Lake).

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.
