The Kitchen will get its NT Live in the UK tomorrow.

The Kitchen By Arnold Wesker
The National Theatre Live season continues with a live broadcast of the smash hit The Kitchen to cinemas worldwide on Thursday 6 October.
The kitchen of a West End restaurant in 1950s London is the setting for a fast and blackly funny examination of life lived at breakneck speed.
Thrown together by their work, chefs, waitresses and porters from across Europe – English, Irish, German, Jewish – argue and flirt as they race to keep up. Peter, a high-spirited young cook, seems to thrive on the pressure. In between preparing dishes, he manages to strike up an affair with married waitress Monique, the whole time dreaming of a better life. But in the all-consuming clamour of the kitchen, nothing is far from the brink of collapse.

This is an interesting one!
I have not yet seen The Kitchen so I have no opinion on it. All I can say is that I saw the set yesterday and it looked amazing!
However, for the first time, I am going to be in the audience in the theatre on Thursday watching the production as they are filming it and broadcasting it live. I have only ever been in the cinema watching the live broadcast from afar. This Thursday I will be in the theatre watching them film and broadcast it live. This will be a very special experience. I cannot wait!
