A Penarth venue will be screening National Theatre Live performances.

The Paget Rooms will host three top rated 'as live' screenings.

Penarth Town Council has revealed that the screenings will be shown in April, May and June.

First to be shown is 'The Motive and the Cue', a new play directed by Sam Mendes, featuring Mark Gatiss and Johnny Flynn.

The story revolves around Richard Burton balancing a new marriage and an experimental Hamlet production in 1964.

The play, written by Jack Thorne and designed by Es Devlin, was filmed live at the National Theatre during its sold-out run.

The second screening is Simon Stephens’ radical version of Chekhov’s 'Uncle Vanya', starring Andrew Scott.

The adaptation - called Vanya - puts human hopes, dreams, and regrets into sharp focus.

'Nye' is the third screening, featuring Michael Sheen portraying Nye Bevan, the creator of the NHS.

The piece, written by Tim Price and directed by Rufus Norris, showcases Bevan's surreal journey through life.

'The Motive and the Cue' airs on April 18, 'Vanya' on May 9, and 'Nye' on June 13.

Tickets, priced £10, are available from Ticket Source.

There will also be a licensed bar.
