National Theatre Live will partner with the Royal Court and Playful Productions to broadcast Hangmen from London’s West End. The play will be captured and projected in Sony 4K digital cinema across Vue Cinemas’ chain of 84 theatres. The production marks the fourth collaboration in the year-long partnership between National Theatre Live, Vue Entertainment and Sony Digital Cinema 4K, which has already seen productions of Behind the Beautiful Forevers, The Beaux Strategem and Hamlet hit the big screen from the stage. Working closely with its production partners, Sony has taken plays from different environments, including the Olivier Theatre, The Barbican and the Wyndhams Theatre, to the cinema screen.
