The 2019 Fugard Bioscope National Theatre Live Encore Season

The 2019 Fugard Bioscope National Theatre Live Encore Season

Story

Winter just got a whole lot warmer with the announcement of the 2019 Fugard Bioscope National Theatre Live Encore Season.

The Season provides the chance to catch some of the most popular titles from the Fugard Bioscope Season including a selection of wonderful National Theatre Live titles. The screenings also take an exciting new format, with presentations on Mondays at 3pm and at 7pm, enabling patrons to enjoy the Fugard Theatre’s delicious new homemade pizzas or even make a double bill of it.

Screenings are presented on The Fugard Theatre’s full size high definition cinema screen with a 7.1 dolby digital surround sound system. Productions are recorded live transporting you to the heart of the action on stage.

National Theatre Live’s Julie, a new version of August Strindberg’s play Miss Julie, written by Polly Stenham. Wild and newly single, Julie throws a late night party. In the kitchen, Jean and Kristina clean up as the celebration heaves above them. Crossing the threshold, Julie initiates a power game with Jean – which rapidly descends into a savage fight for survival. BAFTA Award-winning actress Vanessa Kirby (The Crown) and Eric Kofi Abrefa (The Amen Corner) feature in the cast, directed by Carrie Cracknell (NT Live: The Deep Blue Sea).

“We are excited to present our National Theatre Live Encore Season in a new Monday format,” says Greg Karvellas, Artistic Director of The Fugard Theatre. “Why not make a double bill of it and enjoy our fresh new homemade pizzas, or our selection of delicious snacks with the finest coffees and wines from the Fugard’s coffee shop and bar. Don’t forget you can now pre-order your drinks and pizzas online when booking your tickets - it's so easy!”

Screenings take place at the Fugard Theatre on Mondays at 3pm and at 7pm.Tickets cost R120 and can be booked directly through the Fugard Theatre box office on 021 461 4554 or online at www.thefugard.com  There is a 20% discount for Friends of the Fugard,  a 15% discount for pensioners and a 10% discount for scholars.  These discounted tickets are available through the box office.
