NT Live in January

Two great plays from National Theatre Live

JOHN

Saturday, January 31 @ 2pm & 7pm

Internationally renowned DV8 Physical Theatre brings their powerful new production to the National Theatre. DV8 Physical Theatre has produced 18 highly acclaimed dance-theatre works and four films for television, which have garnered over 50 national and international awards.

The company’s new production, JOHN, authentically depicts real-life stories, combining movement and spoken word to create an intense and moving theatrical experience. Lloyd Newson, DV8’s Artistic Director, interviewed more than 50 men asking them frank questions, initially about love and sex. One of those men was John.

What emerged was a story that is both extraordinary and touching. Years of crime, drug use and struggling to survive lead John on a search in which his life converges with others, in an unexpected place, unknown by most.

Don’t miss this eagerly anticipated new production, broadcast live from the National Theatre.

NOTE: JOHN contains adult themes, strong language and nudity. Suitable for 18yrs+.

Treasure Island

Sunday, February 1 @ 2pm & 7pm
Saturday, March 14 @ 2pm & 7pm

Suitable for 10 years +

Robert Louis Stevenson’s story of murder, money and mutiny is brought to life in a thrilling new stage adaptation by Bryony Lavery, broadcast live from the National Theatre.

It’s a dark, stormy night. The stars are out. Jim, the inn-keeper’s granddaughter, opens the door to a terrifying stranger. At the old sailor’s feet sits a huge sea-chest, full of secrets. Jim invites him in – and her dangerous voyage begins.

Happy New Year

Looking for some fun in the new year? Third Rail has exactly what you need!

First, we have hilarious entertainment for you, your family, and your friends with the wild quick-change romp:

The Mystery of Irma Vep by Charles Ludlam.

Critics at the Oregonian named it a “Best Bet” for the winter theatre season, and it’s been described as “…one of the best laugh-out-loud farces I’ve ever seen!” (Broadway World).

Running through January 10 at the Winningstad Theatre right in downtown Portland, this play is a sure-fire break from the usual holiday fare.

Tickets available HERE

January 3rd and 4th at 2 PM and 7 PM.
