NT LIVE: Motive and the Cue, The

Sam Mendes (The Lehman Trilogy) directs Mark Gatiss as John Gielgud and Johnny Flynn as Richard Burton in this fierce and funny new play. 1964: Richard Burton, newly married to Elizabeth Taylor, is to play the title role in an experimental new Broadway production of Hamlet under John Gielgud's exacting direction. But as rehearsals progress, two ages of theatre collide and the collaboration between actor and director soon threatens to unravel. Written by Jack Thorpe (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) and designed by Es Devlin (The Crucible), the Evening Standard award-winnig best new play was filmed live during a sold-out run at the National Theatre.
