NT Live: ALLELUJAH!
By Alan Bennet. Directed by Nicholas Hytner.
Saturday, April 6, 2019 at 2:00PM

Josephine Louis Theater
20 Arts Circle Drive
on the Evanston Campus of Northwestern University
Evanston, IL 60208
Located on the southeast part of the Evanston campus, just off Sheridan Road and Campus Drive. The Louis Theatre is on the south side of the Wirtz Center building, at the base of the hill leading up to the Arts Circle, facing the parking lot(s).

National Theatre Live is the National Theatre's groundbreaking project to broadcast the best of British theatre live (or for US venues, delayed) from the London stage to cinemas and theaters across the UK and around the world.

The Beth, an old fashioned cradle-to-grave hospital serving a town in Yorkshire, is threatened with closure as part of an efficiency drive. A documentary crew, eager to capture its fight for survival, follows the daily struggle to find beds on the Dusty Springfield Geriatric Ward, and the triumphs of the old people’s choir. One of Britain’s most celebrated writers, Alan Bennett’s plays include The History Boys, The Lady in the Van and The Madness of George III, all of which were also seen on film. Allelujah! is his tenth collaboration with award-winning director Nicholas Hytner. ‘Leaves you bobbing on a wave of happiness’ Independent Alan Bennett’s sharp and hilarious new play is ‘just what the doctor ordered’ (Daily Telegraph). Filmed live at London’s Bridge Theatre during its limited run, don’t miss this acclaimed production full of ‘singalongs and stinging wit’ (Guardian).

National Theatre Live is supported using public funding by Arts Council England and is proudly supported by SkyArts. The Wirtz Center's Stage on Screen broadcasts are sponsored by a generous grant from The Alumnae of Northwestern University.
