      Event: RSC at the Barbican at Theatre Royal Haymarket

      Event: National Theatre: Brecht’s Jazz Opera

      Location: National Theatre, SE1

      A shiny new version of the scandalous beggar’s musical classic The Threepenny Opera is picking theatregoers’ pockets (in a good way) over the summer on the National Theatre’s main stage.

      Rory Kinnear leads the cast, playing the antihero Macheath in Bertolt Brecht’s play with music, rewritten here by well-versed playwright Simon Stephens and directed by the NT’s artistic director, Rufus Norris.

      Event: Sunken Cities: Egypt’s Lost Worlds

      Location: British Museum, WC1

      For over a thousand years the ancient Egyptian cities of Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus lay hidden under the Mediterranean seabed at the mouth of the Nile, only known through Greek myths and historical Egyptian decrees.

      Once busy cosmopolitan port cities built on islands in the Nile Delta, the cities disappeared under the waves centuries ago, becoming completely submerged by the 8th century AD.

    • from 01/06/2016 to 17/08/2016
      Event: The Deep Blue Sea on stage 2016

      Location: National Theatre, SE1

      The ever-watchable Helen McCrory stars in the Terence Rattigan play The Deep Blue Sea at the National Theatre over the summer.

      The play reunites McCrory with director Carrie Cracknell, who directed the actress in Medea at the National two years ago.

      McCrory plays tragic postwar heroine Hester Collyer, who at the start of the play is found by her neighbours at her Ladbroke Grove tenement flat after a suicide attempt. Her story unfolds: the tempestuous affair with a former RAF pilot followed by her abandoning her respectable life as the wife of a High Court judge; the cruelty of her new lover, a man damaged by his war experiences; the emotional breakdown and the loneliness as she is rejected.

    • from 02/06/2016 to 26/06/2016
