Night out at the theatre
The National Theatre is in top form this season, with a selection of fantastic performances to choose from.
Looking for something light and fun to take the kids along to? We recommend Pinnochio - a spectacular new production, brought to the stage by the director of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and the writer of Matilda the Musical, featuring unforgettable music and songs from the Walt Disney film including I’ve Got No Strings, Give a Little Whistle and When You Wish Upon a Star in dazzling new arrangements, Pinocchio comes to life as never before.
Choose The Great Wave, an epic new thriller, for something a little more serious. It tells the story of teenage sisters Hanako and Reiko, who are caught up in a storm. Reiko survives while Hanako is lost to the sea. Their mother, however, can’t shake the feeling her missing daughter is still alive, and soon family tragedy takes on a global political dimension.
For an ultimate classic (kids will like this too) opt for Macbeth, Shakespeare’s most intense and terrifying tragedy, directed by Rufus Norris. Starring Rory Kinnear and Anne-Marie Duff.
