NT Live's 50 Anniversary Celebration Continues with Encore Screenings

NT Live's 50 Anniversary Celebration Continues with Encore Screenings

Third Rail is proud to present the best of British Theatre in live-captured performances from the National Theatre in London.

Join us for these upcoming productions:

Medea

MEDEA
by Euripides
in a new version by Ben Power
directed by Carrie Cracknell

Helen McCrory (The Last of the Haussmans) returns to the National Theatre to take the title role in Euripides’ powerful tragedy, in a new version by Ben Power, directed by Carrie Cracknell.

Medea is a wife and a mother. For the sake of her husband, Jason, she’s left her home and borne two sons in exile. But when he abandons his family for a new life, Medea faces banishment and separation from her children. Cornered, she begs for one day’s grace.

It’s time enough. She exacts an appalling revenge and destroys everything she holds dear.

Screenings will be September 13 and 14 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. in the World Trade Center Theater.

Middletown Vaults to the Top of Third Rail's Ninth Season

Will Eno's "delicate, moving and wry" play begins on September 26 at the Winningstad

Middletown


We kick off our ninth season with a play Third Rail has been dying to produce since it was the hit of Portland Center Stage's 2009 JAW Festival, Middletown by Will Eno. The residents of Middletown lead lives that are probably not too different from ours. They wake up, go to work, say hello to their neighbors, fix the plumbing, seek advice on parenting, and try to live lives that are as rewarding as possible. It's all fairly ordinary. And yet...ordinary doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of this quirky, word-frenzied, refraction of Thornton Wilder's Our Town. Middletown is a quizzical fable about life in all its sweetness and pain, joy and wonder, beginnings and endings.

Middletown


Featured will be company members Michael O'Connell, Maureen Porter, Damon Kupper, Karen Trumbo, and Bruce Burkhartsmeier, joined by guest artists Amy Newman, Darius Pierce, Diane Kondrat, and Ben Newman. Direction will be by Marcella Crowson.

Performances begin September 24 at the Winningstad Theatre.
