  The Hard Problem
A National Theatre Production

Thursday 16 April, 7.00pm
Acclaimed playwright Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love, Arcadia, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead) returns to the National Theatre with his highly-anticipated new play, directed by Nicholas Hytner (Othello, Hamlet, One Man, Two Guvnors).

Hilary, a young psychology researcher at a brainscience institute, is nursing a private sorrow and a troubling question at work, where psychology and biology meet. If there is nothing but matter, what is consciousness? This is ‘the hard problem’ which puts Hilary at odds with her colleagues who include her first mentor Spike, her boss Leo and the billionaire founder of the institute, Jerry. Is the day coming when the computer and the fMRI scanner will answer all the questions psychology can ask? Meanwhile Hilary needs a miracle, and she is prepared to pray for one.

The best of British theatre broadcast live to the big screen at Gala.

  Jo Caulfield
Uninformed Opinions

Thursday 23 April, 8.00pm
Everyone has an opinion… unfortunately. This is the show for anyone who has ever wanted to scream ‘shut up – you donlt know what you’re talking about’. Expect razor-sharp observations and scandalous one-liners as Jo shares her opinions on everything from women who always pick the wrong partner and men who continually quote gangster films. She confesses to a romantic break that almost ended in divorce, re-enacts the world’s worst birthday party and explains why her husband could never be a serial killer.

The fresh, often dangerously fierce pop-culture obsessed Canadian, was unaffected by publicised death threats and survived the world's first crack-smoking mayor. Recommended age 16+

Man & Superman
A National Theatre Production

Thursday 14 May, 7.00pm
Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes (The English Patient, Schindler’s List; Oedipus at the National Theatre) plays Jack Tanner in this exhilarating reinvention of George Bernard Shaw’s witty, provocative classic.

A romantic comedy, an epic fairytale, a fiery philosophical debate, Man and Superman asks fundamental questions about how we live. Jack Tanner, celebrated radical thinker and rich bachelor, seems an unlikely choice as guardian to the alluring heiress, Ann. But she takes it in her assured stride and, despite the love of a poet, she decides to marry and tame this dazzling revolutionary. Tanner, appalled by the whiff of domesticity, is tipped off by his chauffeur and flees to Spain, where he is captured by bandits and meets The Devil. An extraordinary dream-debate, heaven versus hell, ensues. Following in hot pursuit, Ann is there when Tanner awakes, as fierce in her certainty as he is in his.

The best of British theatre, broadcast live to the bid screen at Gala.
