(Ralph Fiennes)

National Theatre Live enables audiences to experience the best of British theatre throughout the year, as the NT brings cameras into the auditorium to record and broadcast performances from stage to screen. Over three and a half million people have experienced a National Theatre Live broadcast via satellite, both live and time-delayed, in more than 2,000 venues in over 40 different countries around the world, including South Africa. National Theatre Live events are distributed outside the UK through New York-based BY Experience, the pioneer of global live “alternative content” digital cinema events.

The next production from National Theatre Live to be screened at Cinema Nouveau in South Africa will be Bernard’s Shaw’s Man and Superman which will be released on June 13.

Academy Award®-nominee Ralph Fiennes (The English Patient, Schindler’s List) plays Jack Tanner in this exhilarating reinvention of Shaw’s witty, provocative classic. A romantic comedy, an epic fairy tale, a fiery philosophical debate, Man and Superman asks fundamental questions about how we live.
