NT Live Today: People, National Theatre (Thurs 21 March)

People gets its NT Live today, so it will be broadcast live from the National Theatre into cinemas across the UK and around the world.

Cut and pasted from the National Theatre Website:

A new play by Alan Bennett

A sale? Why not? Release all your wonderful treasures onto the open market and they are there for everyone to enjoy. It’s a kind of emancipation, a setting them free to range the world … a saleroom here, an exhibition there; art, Lady Stacpoole, is a rover.

People spoil things; there are so many of them and the last thing one wants is them traipsing through one’s house. But with the park a jungle and a bath on the billiard table, what is one to do? Dorothy wonders if an attic sale could be a solution.

The trailer is here:

Short and sweet (very!). I very much enjoyed seeing this live at the theatre and I am really looking forward to seeing it again at the cinema tonight (Brixton Ritzy here I come!).

What is it about? Landed gentry, family, the National Trust, the Church of England and a porn movie!
