CANCELLED : NT LIVE: HEX
Thu, 17th March, 2022 @ 19:00pm - 21:30pm£8 – £12
National Theatre Live
It is with much regret that National Theatre Live will be cancelling the cinema release of Hex originally planned for 17 March 2022.
This is in response to extensive Covid disruption affecting our performing companies at the National Theatre, which has resulted in the cancellation of performances of Hex across the Christmas period. Due to these cancellations, the production will sadly not be ready in time to be recorded during its current run.
book by Tanya Ronder, music by Jim Fortune and lyrics by Rufus Norris
A vividly original retelling of Sleeping Beauty, a mythic, big-hearted new musical that goes beyond the waking kiss.
Deep in the wood, a lonely fairy longs for someone to bless. When she is summoned to the palace to help the princess sleep, her dream turns into a nightmare and her blessing becomes a curse. Soon, she is plunged into a frantic, hundred-year quest to somehow make everything right.
Rufus Norris directs Rosalie Craig (The Ferryman, Company) in this new musical filmed live on stage at the National Theatre, with music by Jim Fortune, book by Tanya Ronder.
