NVAP Screening: Julius Caesar photo

Join us to watch the groundbreaking all-female production of Julius Caesar directed by Phyllida Lloyd. Set in a women’s prison, the play explores power, betrayal and corruption. This production was recorded live by the V&A in January 2013 at the Donmar Warehouse, London.

This screening will be 2 hours, with no interval. Please note, NVAP screening titles are subject to last minute changes.

Established in 1992, through an agreement with the Federation of Entertainment Unions, NVAP was the first project of its kind in the UK. The archive now holds over 450 high-quality archival multi-camera recordings of live performance in Britain and continues to record and preserve productions for the national collection. The archive, launched with Richard Eyre’s production of Richard III starring Ian McKellen (National Theatre, 1992), features a vast range of stage performances with work by notable playwrights, directors, set designers, lighting designers and actors. It is an invaluable research tool to view and learn about significant British productions and captures and preserves moments of ephemeral performance history that otherwise would be lost.
