NT Live's HANGMEN to Screen at Ridgefield Playhouse, 3/3NT Live's HANGMEN to Screen at Ridgefield Playhouse, 3/3
by BWW News Desk - Feb 4, 2016

  You don't have to fly to England to get a front row seat at a live performance coming straight from the stage of London's West End to the BIG Screen in Ridgefield.  Following a sell-out run at the Royal Court Theatre, Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman, The Cripple of Inishmaan, In Bruges) returns with Matthew Dunster's award-winning production of his intensely funny new play Hangmen.  Broadcast live to select cinemas by National Theatre Live,  AAA Northeast at The Playhouse:  Live in HD will present this live screening on Thursday, March 3 at 2 p.m.  Time Out calls it 'the funniest and most entertaining play in London right now."  In his small pub in the northern English town of Oldham, Harry (David Morrissey - The Walking Dead, State of Play) is something of a local celebrity. But what's the second-best hangman in England to do on the day they've abolished hanging?  Amongst the cub reporters and pub regulars dying to hear Harry's reaction to the news, his old assistant Syd (Andy Nyman - Peaky Blinders, Death at a Funeral) and the peculiar Mooney (Johnny Flynn - Clouds of Sils Maria) lurk with very different motives for the visit.  AAA Northeast at The Playhouse Live in HD Series is underwritten by Lori and John Berisford, Jeanne Cook, Anita and Nicholas Donofrio, Liz and Steven Goldstone, Sabina and Walter Slavin.  With Support from The Ridgefield Press and Whistle Stop Bakery.

by Frank Benge - Feb 1, 2016

TRIBES by Nina Raine first premiered in 2010 at London's Royal Court Theatre. It won the 2012 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play in its Off-Broadway premiere. The play is a look at a dysfunctional British family, made up of parents Beth (Babs George) and Christopher (Mitch Peleggi) and their three grown children who are still living at home: Daniel (Aaron Johnson), Ruth (Ava L'Amoreaux) and Billy (Stephen Drabicki). Billy is deaf and was raised to read lips and speak but without knowledge of sign language. One evening in a nightclub, Billy meets Sylvia (Iris McQuillan-Grace), a woman born to deaf parents now slowly going deaf herself. As Billy falls in love with Sylvia, and she teaches him sign language, the play exposes the audience to the deep divide between the deaf and hearing communities. (more...)
