NEWS: EASTWOOD PARK PRESENTS NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE

Eastwood Park Theatre will bring the National Theatre to Giffnock as part of their project ‘NT Live’, which broadcasts world-class theatre across the UK.

Three NT Live performances are lined up this season, featuring renowned, award-winning actors including Gillian Anderson, Sally Field and Bill Pullman.

First on the line-up will be All About Eve, starring Gillian Anderson (X Files) and Lily James (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again), streamed live to Eastwood Park Theatre on Thursday 11 April, followed by Arthur Miller’s All My Sons on 28 May and Andrea Levy’s Small Island on 11 July.

Anthony McReavy from East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure, said: “National Theatre Live has been experienced by over five million people around the world so we’re excited to bring this concept to our local audience, featuring some of the best productions, with top class casts and performances. We have upgraded our cinema screen and technology with a new Panasonic Laser projector, screen and surround sound system to maximise the viewing experience of the National Theatre productions.

Each broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience in London’s West End with cameras positioned around the auditorium to ensure that our audience at Eastwood Park will enjoy the best possible experience of the show.

All About Eve will broadcast live from the West End in London, lifting the lid on a world of jealousy and ambition. This new production is from one of the world’s most innovative theatre directors, Ivo van Hove and asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never gets old.

Arthur Miller’s All My Sons will be filmed live at The Old Vic in London, starring Academy Award-winner Sally Field (Steel Magnolias, Brothers and Sisters) and Bill Pullman (The Sinner, Independence Day) and comes to Eastwood Park Theatre on 28 May.

The third show, Small Island, is a new theatre adaptation of Andrea Levy’s Orange Prize-winning novel featuring a company of 40 actors who will be filmed live on stage as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday, coming to Eastwood Park on 11 July.

Tickets cost £15 standard and students can attend for £12 for All About Eve and All My Sons. Tickets for Small Island are priced at £12 standard and students can attend for £10. Visit www.eastwoodparktheatre.co.uk/boxoffice or call 0141 577 4956.
