National Theatre Live: Leopoldstadt (Recorded Screening)

Sunday 6th February, 7pm, £15

Regarded as ‘Britain’s greatest living playwright’ (Times), Tony and Academy Award-winner Tom Stoppard’s critically acclaimed new play Leopoldstadt will be screened for one-night only at The Courthouse.

Follow this gripping account of one family’s story, spanning half a century, passing through war and revolution, with a cast of 40 actors representing each generation of this remarkable family. The play is based on the experiences of Tom Stoppard’s grandparents in Nazi Germany, making the performance is as personal as it is epic.

With the show no longer onstage in London, this will be the audience’s only chance to see Leopoldstadt in all its visceral glory.

Kris Drever

Wednesday 9th February, 8pm, £17

Kris Drever is a Scottish folk singer-songwriter, who has won multiple awards including 7 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, two shortlist nominations for Scottish Album of The Year (with his trio Lau) as well as critical acclaim from The Herald, The Guardian, Mojo and Q Magazine. An honest and emotionally complex songwriter, his performance at The Courthouse will show why he’s one of the most dynamic performers in modern British folk.

His recent single ‘Scapa Flow 1919’ was nominated for Best Original Track by BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards whilst his (Jon Parish) produced album with Lau, Midnight and Closedown, was released in 2019 by Reveal Records to wild acclaim, this included being chosen in the Best Albums of The Year feature by The Guardian.

Whether you’re a folk fan or a lover of music in all its shapes and sizes, this intimate performance will be a highlight of the year.
