Two five-star productions, currently playing in the West End, are heading for the big screen next year.

Vanya, starring Andrew Scott and co-created with Simon Stephens, Sam Yates and Rosanna Vizes, will be broadcast on 22 February to cinemas worldwide. The show is currently midway through its sold-out run at the Duke of York’s Theatre in the West End.

James Graham’s Dear England, based on the impact of Gareth Southgate on national football, will be shown in cinemas on 25 January. The piece, starring Joseph Fiennes and directed by Rupert Goold, is currently running in the West End at the Prince Edward Theatre.

The award-winning revival of David Hare’s Skylight will be broadcast on 16 November, starring Carey Mulligan and Bill Nighy.

Scott said today: “We put our heart and souls into creating this show together, and we are completely overwhelmed and thrilled with the response. I’m honoured and delighted that our version of this masterpiece can be watched by a wider audience through our colleagues at NT live.

“I’ve never been more convinced by the necessity and connective power of live theatre. Long may it reign.”

Venues can be found on the NT Live website.
