PostHeaderIcon Live @ The Waterfront: Two Gentlemen of Verona -- 3 September

Wednesday 3 September -- Live @ The Waterfront: Royal Shakespeare Company -- Two Gentlemen of Verona -- Screening at 7pm at the Waterfront Cinema, Customhouse Way, Greenock.

Valentine and Proteus are best friends, until they fall in love with the same girl. Having travelled to Milan in search of adventure, they both fall for the Duke’s daughter Silvia. But Proteus is already sworn to his sweetheart, Julia, at home in Verona, and the Duke thinks Valentine is not good enough for his Silvia. With friendship forgotten, the rivals’ affections quickly get out of hand as the four young lovers find themselves on a wild chase through the woods, confused by mistaken identity and threatened by fierce outlaws before they find a path to reconciliation. Simon Godwin makes his RSC debut to direct Shakespeare’s exuberant romantic comedy. He is Associate Director of the Royal Court and his production of Strange Interlude recently played to critical acclaim at the National Theatre. This is the first time in 45 years The Two Gentlemen of Verona has been performed in full production on the Royal Shakespeare Theatre stage.

PostHeaderIcon Live @ The Waterfront: National Theatre Live – Medea -- 4 September

Thursday 4 September -- Live@The Waterfront: National Theatre Live – Medea -- Screening at 7pm at the Waterfront Cinema, Customhouse Way, Greenock.

Helen McCrory returns to the National Theatre to take the title role in Euripides’s great Greek revenge tragedy. Medea (Helen McCrory) is Jason’s wife and the mother of his two sons. Her world comes crashing down when she learns that he has betrayed and abandoned her for another woman. Now she stands to lose her position in society and faces banishment and separation from her children. After pleading successfully for a single day’s grace, she exacts a terrible revenge. Stage and screen star Helen McCrory, whose film roles include ‘Skyfall’ and three Harry Potter films, was previously seen at the National Theatre in ‘The Last of the Haussmans’. She takes the lead role in this new version of ‘Medea’ by NT Associate Director Ben Power, who so skilfully adapted Ibsen’s epic ‘Emperor and Galilean’. The director is Carrie Cracknell, whose credits include a much-acclaimed Young Vic production of ‘A Doll’s House’.
