We caught a first look at the Unicorn Theatre‘s production of The Canterville Ghost. A spooky and funny retelling of Oscar Wilde’s novel is brought to life at the Unicorn this Christmas.

The National Theatre announced their programming from December 2019 to June 2020. Upcoming productions will include – Romeo and Juliet with Josh O’Connor, Jessie Buckley and Fisayo Akinade; Sea Sick, written and performed by Alanna Mitchell; Hamlet reimagined for younger audiences by Jude Christian and directed by Tinuke Craig, which will tour to state schools across London, before performances in March; Gary Owen’s new play Romeo and Julie, a co-production with Sherman Theatre, with Callum Scott Howells and Rosie Sheehy as Romeo and Julie.

Their NT Live broadcasts in 202 will also include Cyrano De Bergerac with James McAvoy, The Welkin with Maxine Peake, Jack Absolute Flies Again and Romeo & Juliet.
