National Theatre Live

adapted by Helen Edmundson based on the novel by Andrea Levy

Andrea Levy's Orange Prize-winning novel *Small Island *comes to life in an epic new theatre adaptation. Experience the play in cinemas, filmed live on stage as part of National Theatre Live's 10th birthday.

Small Island embarks on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, through the Second World War to 1948 - the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury.

The play follows three intricately connected stories. Hortense yearns for a new life away from rural Jamaica, Gilbert dreams of becoming a lawyer, and Queenie longs to escape her Lincolnshire roots. Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history of Jamaica and the UK.

A company of 40 actors take to the stage of the National Theatre in this timely and moving story.

Bring a group of 10 people and one person can go free.

National Theatre Live is the National Theatre's ground-breaking project to broadcast world-class theatre to cinemas in the UK and internationally. For more information about NT Live please visit *http://ntlive.nationaltheatre.org.uk/about-us*
