Shakespeare

RSC Live: The Merry Wives Of Windsor (12A)

Screening live by satellite to Kino Rye and Kino Hawkhurst on Wednesday 12th September at 7.00pm.

A new version of Shakespeare’s hilarious comedy of suburbia, wives and over-inflated egos.

Sir John Falstaff plans to hustle his way to comfortable retirement by seducing the wives of two wealthy men. But it’s the women of Windsor who pull the strings and in a world of wealth, glamour and ‘well jel’ wives, they finally tell Sir John to ‘shut up’.

The only way is Windsor in this outrageous and fun-filled new version, directed by Fiona Laird.

Directed by Fiona Laird and starring David Troughton, Ishia Bennison and Paul Dodds.

 

NT Live: King Lear 2018 (12A)

Screening at Kino Hawkhurst and Kino Rye on Thursday 27th September at 7pm.

Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them.

This screening of Chichester Festival Theatre’s 2017 production stars Ian McKellen in the role of Lear, his intimate, intricate and conversational performance hailed as a triumph. The play received five-star reviews for its sell-out run and afterwards transferred to the West End for 100 performances only. This contemporary retelling of the great tragedy is directed by Jonathan Munby. Also starring are Sinéad Cusack as Kent and Kirsty Bushell as Regan. Not to be missed.
