About National Theatre Live

Ian McKellen stars in this contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play. Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written. Two aging fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.

Our National Theatre Live programming brings the best of London’s award-winning stars broadcast directly from the National Theatre stage to the MAC big screen. Please note these are not live stage shows, they are live telecasts.
