National Theatre Live “The Welkin”- CANCELLED

National Theatre Live “The Welkin”- CANCELLED

Presented by Tanner Humanities Center at Broadway Centre Cinemas

Due to the ongoing concerns about COVID-19 and at the direction of Governor Gary Herbert and President Ruth Watkins, we will be postponing all upcoming National Theatre Live screenings. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and follow guidance from the CDC and local government officials.


One life in the hands of 12 women.

Rural England, 1759. As the country waits for Halley’s comet, 21-year-old Sally Poppy is sentenced to hang for a heinous murder.

When Sally claims to be pregnant, a jury of 12 matrons are taken from their housework to decide whether she’s telling the truth, or simply trying to escape the noose. With only midwife Lizzy Luke prepared to defend the girl, and a mob baying for blood outside, the matrons wrestle with their new authority, and the devil in their midst.

James Macdonald (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) directs Maxine Peake (TheTheory of Everything, Funny Cow) and Ria Zmitrowicz (Three Girls, Mr. Selfridge) in this bold and gripping thriller from Tony-nominated writer Lucy Kirkwood (Chimerica, Skins). Broadcast live from the National Theatre in London.
