Four new productions from the NT Live have been added to the summer programme at Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre.

The venue will be showing a delayed streaming of Tom Stoppard’s classic Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead from the Old Vic, starring Daniel Radcliffe and Joshua McGuire.

Obsession, starring Jude Law, will be broadcast live from the Barbican Theatre. An adaptation of Visconti’s 1943 film, which was based on James M Cain’s novel The Postman Always Rings Twice, it’s directed by Ivo van Hove. That’s followed by a show which continues this year’s NT Live theme of strong female roles with Salomé, a radical new take on the Bible story from acclaimed director Yaёl Farber, live from the stage of the National Theatre.

Billie Piper reprises her smash-hit role in Yerma at the Young Vic. Piper plays Her, a woman driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child.

Both Salomé and Yerma are rated 15 due to content.
