Following previously sold-out screenings at the Fugard Bioscope, additional presentations of National Theatre Live’s Fleabag and The Lehman Trilogy have been added to the programme.
The Fugard Bioscope presented by Eric Abraham and Ken Forrester Vineyards, presents the encore screening of acclaimed play The Lehman Trilogy at 7pm on Monday 25 May 2020. Three additional screenings of Fleabag will be shown on Monday 27 April at 3pm, 5pm and 7pm.
The Lehman Trilogy is the story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening.
Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall, The Ferryman) directs Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles who play the Lehman Brothers, their sons and grandsons. On a cold September morning in 1844 a young man from Bavaria stands on a New York dockside. Dreaming of a new life in the new world. He is joined by his two brothers and an American epic begins. 163 years later, the firm they establish – Lehman Brothers – spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy, and triggers the largest financial crisis in history. This critically acclaimed and five-time Olivier Award nominated play features stunning set design from Es Devlin.
See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series Fleabag.
Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, Fleabag is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life. Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose. Playing to sold-out audiences in New York and London, don’t miss your chance to see this ‘legitimately hilarious show’ (New Yorker). Age restriction 15+ (L).
