TableFrom 9th April 2013, the National Theatre's temporary performance space The Shed opens with Table, a play written by Tanya Ronder and directed by Rufus Norris. The playwright, who trained at RADA and spent fourteen years working as an actress before turning to writing, has previously seen success with her 2007 adaptation of DBC Pierre's Booker-prizewinning novel, Vernon God Little, which was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Play. In this new piece the story encompasses six generations, nine performers, thirty characters and one very special piece of furniture. Tickets are reasonably priced at 12 or 20 pounds and booking opens on 1st March for the general public or from 22nd to 28th February for National Theatre members.

 

About National Theatre

Each year the three superb venues in the National Theatre put on a significant proportion of the world's best productions. From intimate character studies in the Cottesloe (currently closed for refurbishment), to grand spectacles in the Olivier, the National Theatre is the spiritual centre of the British theatrical tradition.
