West End theatre is heading for Nairn courtesy of a deal made with the town's Little Theatre.
The venue in King Street is now working in partnershp with National Theatre Live to bring some of the best UK theatrical shows to local audiences via the big screen.
Whether it’s serious drama, comedies, romcoms, or sold-out award-winning hits, The Little Theatre will be showing unmissable theatre, filmed live from some of Britain’s most exciting stages.
Morven Henderson-McKillop, a director of Nairn Drama which operates The Little Theatre, said: "It’s an amazing opportunity for people to pop along to their local theatre and see the likes of David Tennant, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Emilia Clarke, and Ralph Fiennes in productions as wide ranging as Fleabag, Chekhov’s The Seagull, Hamlet, or even the Life of Pi.
"Because of the quality of the performances and the technology used to film shows live, our audiences will have the best seats in the house.
"People will be able to pick and choose which shows they’d like to see, safe in the knowledge that every element on stage, such as lighting, hair, and make-up look fantastic on the big screen."
The first show set to be screened is Fleabag, written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and directed by Vicky Jones.
Well know for its TV outing it is a rip-roaring look at a modern woman trying to live her life.
Following a record-breaking run in 2019, the one-woman show returns to National Theatre Live this summer and will be screened on July 28 at The Little Theatre.
