'James Bond: Skyfall' director Sam Mendes's highly-anticipated return to the NT, with Simon Russell Beale in the title role of Shakespeare's great tragedy.

Aging, weary King Lear (Simon Russell Beale) plans to divide his realm between his three daughters. He tells them that the one who declares the greatest love for him will win the lion's share. Goneril (Kate Fleetwood) and Regan (Anna Maxwell Martin) attempt to outdo one another with extravagant praise. Disgusted by their behaviour, the youngest daughter, Cordelia (Olivia Vinall), refuses to say anything. Enraged, Lear banishes her forever, even though she is his favorite. So begins a series of events that lead to tragedy.

Oscar-winning 'American Beauty' and 'Skyfall' director Sam Mendes returns to the National Theatre for this new production of Shakespeare's masterpiece. It reunites him with frequent collaborator and two-time Olivier Award winner Simon Russell Beale, who's been described as the greatest stage actor of his generation.

Following its hit broadcast in 2012, the National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time returns to Kansas City at the Tivoli. Winner of seven 2013 Olivier Awards, including Best New Play, this thrilling new production has been hailed by The Times as "a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle."

Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears' dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time was originally published in 2003. It was the winner of more than seventeen literary awards, including prizes in Japan, Holland and Italy as well as the Whitbread Book of the Year Award in the UK in 2004.

Alan Ayckbourn’s A Small Family Business, a riotous exposure of entrepreneurial greed, returns to the National where it first premiered in 1987.

What if all your in-laws are outlaws?

Jack McCracken: a man of principle in a corrupt world. But not for long. Moments after taking over his father-in-law’s business he’s approached by a private detective armed with some compromising information. Jack’s integrity fades away as he discovers his extended family to be thieves and adulterers, looting the business from their suburban homes. Rampant self-interest takes over and comic hysteria builds to a macabre climax.
