National Theatre Live: A Small Family Business
United Kingdom, 2013, 180 Minute Running Time
Coming in July! Two Shows Only. Tickets now available!
A riotous exposure of entrepreneurial greed by Olivier Award-winning playwright Alan Ayckbourn (Bedroom Farce, A Chorus of Disapproval). A Small Family Business returns to the National Theatre for the first time since its celebrated premiere in 1987, when it won the Evening Standard Award for Best Play.
Jack McCracken: a man of principle in a corrupt world. But not for long. Moments after taking over his father-in-law’s business he’s approached by a private detective armed with some compromising information. Jack’s integrity fades away as he discovers his extended family to be thieves and adulterers, looting the business from their suburban homes. Rampant self-interest takes over and comic hysteria builds to a macabre climax.
As a part of the National Theatre Live series, “A Small Family Business” will be recorded live and shown on a delayed basis. The Sie FilmCenter is the exclusive Denver-area venue for this thrilling series of great plays.
Simulcast in full HD and 5.1 Surround Sound. Tickets are $15 for DFS Members, $16 for Seniors or Students, $18 for General Admission.
