Infectious energy, brilliant gags from some of the team behind Horrible Histories. This film tells the story of 'what really happened' during Shakespeare's 'lost years' - how the hopeless lute player Bill Shakespeare left his family and home to follow his dream. Along the way he encounters murderous kings, spies, lost loves, and a plot to blow up Queen Elizabeth. This is a genuinely good family film which will properly entertain all ages.
Relaxed Family Screenings at the NT are specifically designed to welcome people who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including people with an Autism Spectrum Condition, sensory and communication disorders, or a learning disability. We aim to make the events as inclusive as possible for families so they are open to all, even if you don’t need the adjustments we make for relaxed screenings.
There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement and some small changes made to the light and sound effects, we’ll keep the cinema lights on low and turn the volume down slightly. There will be no trailers or advertisements before the film starts and you are welcome to move around the cinema space if you want to. You are free to bring your own food and drinks.
