NT Live Series: Small Island - Live on Screen

Saturday 14th-Monday 16th December 2019

National Theatre Live is the National Theatre’s groundbreaking project to broadcast world-class theatre to cinemas in the UK and internationally.

The National Theatre adapt Andrea Levy's Orange Prize-winning novel on the history of Jamaica and the UK as part of their 2018-2019 season of live recordings direct from the London stage.

"Small Island embarks on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, through the Second World War to 1948 – the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury, England. The play follows three intricately connected stories. Hortense yearns for a new life away from rural Jamaica, Gilbert dreams of becoming a lawyer, and Queenie longs to escape her Lincolnshire roots. Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history of Jamaica and the UK." (NT Live)
