NT Live (Encore): The Motive and the Cue

Thursday, 28 Mar 24 at 19:00 PM
Sam Mendes (The Lehman Trilogy) directs Mark Gatiss as John Gielgud and Johnny Flynn
as Richard Burton in this fierce and funny new play.

1964: Richard Burton, newly married to Elizabeth Taylor, is to play the title role in an
experimental new Broadway production of Hamlet under John Gielgud's exacting direction.
But as rehearsals progress, two ages of theatre collide and the collaboration between actor
and director soon threatens to unravel.

Written by Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) and designed by Es Devlin (The
Crucible), the Evening Standard award-winning best new play was filmed live during a
sold-out run at the National Theatre.
