People spoil things; there are so many of them and the last thing one wants is them traipsing through one's house. But with the park a jungle and a bath on the billiard table, what is one to do? Dorothy (Frances de la Tour) wonders if an attic sale could be a solution.
Alan Bennett is one of Britain's most celebrated playwrights, and the much anticipated People is the sixth of his plays to have its premiere at the National Theatre. Following its original run The History Boys transferred to Broadway, winning the Tony Award for Best Play in 2006, and toured internationally before being turned into a film, again directed by Nicholas Hytner and with a cast including Frances de la Tour.
Bennett and Hytner also collaborated on the award-winning play and film The Madness of King George and their last stage production, The Habit of Art, was broadcast as part of National Theatre Live in 2010.
'Outrageously funny and provocative.' Independent
''Moments of tenderness and droll social insight that show Bennett at his best.' Independent

It's 1974 and the corridors of Westminster ring with the sound of infighting and backbiting as Britain's political parties battle to change the future of the nation, whatever it takes. In this hung parliament, the ruling party holds on by a thread.
James Graham's biting, energetic and critically-acclaimed new play strips politics down to the practical realities of those behind the scenes who roll up their sleeves, and on occasion bend the rules, to manoeuvre a diverse and conflicting chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments.
A funny and moving political epic.' The Times
'Astute, funny and hugely enjoyable.' Financial Times
'Jeremy Herrin's production recaptures, with abundant theatricality, the mayhem of Westminster politics.' Guardian
Sat July 6 at 11am & 2pm
More dates to be announced soon.
Helen Mirren returns to her acclaimed role as Queen Elizabeth II in a riveting new play by the author of Skyfall (co-writer), Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy; Frost/Nixon; and The Queen.
Romeo & Juliet
Based on Shakespeare's play, Romeo and Juliet is one of the most popular ballets in the world. Originally commissioned by the Leningrad Kirov Ballet in 1934, Sergei Prokofiev's ballet did not premiere at the Kirov stage until 1940 and at the Bolshoi until 1946 as the dancers declared it "un-danceable" and the score inaudible. Today, it is considered to be Prokofiev's most valued work due to the high melodic inspiration, the great variety of rhythms and the memorable main characters.
Duration: 2hrs 25 mins including intermission (approx)

Exhibition: Great Art On Screen
Exhibition: Great Art on Screen is a new series of cinema events presenting major international art exhibitions currently on show during 2013, captured in high definition for the big screen by the producers of Leonardo Live, which screened at MONA in 2012. Each event, hosted by art historian Tim Marlow, goes beyond the gallery with exclusive behind-the-scenes exhibition coverage, biographical profiles and present day views of significant locations in the life of each artist.
The series began in April with Manet: Portraying Life, a career-encompassing collection of the portraiture of Edouard Manet, at the Royal Academy of Arts. In October, the final instalment, Vermeer and Music is a unique perspective on the masterpieces of Johannes Vermeer, presented at the National Gallery in London.
Begins Sat 13 July and Sun 14 July.
