NT Live Broadcast — Small Island
September 6 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Andrea Levy’s Orange Prize-winning novel “Small Island” comes to life in an epic new theatre adaptation. Experience the play in cinemas, filmed live onstage as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday season.
“Small Island” embarks on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, from WWII to 1948 — the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury, England. Hortense yearns for a new life away from rural Jamaica, Gilbert dreams of becoming a lawyer, and Queenie longs to escape her Lincolnshire roots. Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history of Jamaica and the UK.
