The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role.
A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece.
The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times) and ‘stunning, searing, unmissable’ (Mail on Sunday).
Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as ‘spellbinding’ (The Evening Standard), ‘astonishing’ (iNews) and ‘devastatingly powerful’ (The Daily Telegraph).
Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax.
Please note this broadcast does not have an interval.

Broadcast live from London's Royal Festival Hall, join us for a celebration of one of
the world’s greatest writers as he shares the secrets behind the creation of his
most beloved character. From his extraordinary Cold War novels – such as The
Spy Who Came in from the Cold and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy – to his powerful
descriptions of the War on Terror in The Night Manager, A Most Wanted Man and A
Delicate Truth, the writing of John le Carré has come to define the last half century.
In a rare public appearance and oneoff
event, the author reads from his new
novel, A Legacy of Spies, which sees the return of his most iconic Cold War
characters, as their past comes back to claim them in the present. With a unique
question and answer session, this is an unmissable opportunity to experience one
of the foremost chroniclers of our age, direct and in his own words.
In conversation le Carré discusses the full breadth of his career spanning five
decades, and reflects on the continuing story of his most famous creation, the
tubby, bespectacled spy, George Smiley.

His ambitious mother attempts to carve him a path to political power, but he struggles to change his nature and do what is required to achieve greatness. In this new city state struggling to find its feet, where the gap between rich and poor is widening every day, Coriolanus must decide who he really is and where his allegiances lie.

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN:
DAVID HOCKNEY AT THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS



Rory Kinnear (The Threepenny Opera, Penny Dreadful, Othello) is Marx and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night, Green Wing) is Engels, in this new comedy
written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman.
Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre, London, the production  is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team
behind Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors.
1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy.
Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway.
But there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the piss than Karl Heinrich Marx.
