Big Screen Nation

The UK National Theatre's production of Mark Ravenhill's "Nation" to play at both local Angelika theaters.

published Saturday, February 6, 2010

NT Live will broadcast the National Theatre's massive production of Terry Pratchett’s Nation, adapted by Mark Ravenhill and directed by Melly Still, in movie theaters across the world.

The play was filmed live at the National Theatre in London and will screen in high-definition at the Angelika Film Centre/Dallas at 7 p.m. on Feb. 10 and Feb. 11; and at the Angelika Film Centre/Plano at 2 p.m. Feb. 14 and 7 p.m. Feb. 16.

Nation is set in a parallel world in 1860. Two teenagers, Mau and Daphne, are thrown together by a tsunami that has destroyed Mau’s village and left Daphne shipwrecked on his South Pacific island, thousands of miles from home. Mau wears next to nothing, Daphne a long white dress; neither speaks the other’s language; somehow they must learn to survive.

It's described as "an exhilarating adventure story of survival and self-discovery featuring live music, dance and extraordinary puppets, suitable for ages 10 and older." Thanks For Reading
