National Theatre Live: Travelling Light
A new play by Nicholas Wright will be broadcast live to cinemas around the world on Thursday 9 February 2012 and varying dates internationally.


How had a twenty-two-year-old pretentious layabout made a discovery that would elude every other cinematic pioneer for years to come?


In a remote village in Eastern Europe, around 1900, the young Motl Mendl is entranced by the flickering silent images on his father's cinematograph. Bankrolled by Jacob, the ebullient local timber merchant, and inspired by Anna, the girl sent to help him make moving pictures of their village, he stumbles on a revolutionary way of story-telling. Forty years on, Motl  now a famed American film director  looks back on his early life and confronts the cost of fulfilling his dreams.

I know it was in the picture. I made the picture and now the cow's getting paid and I'm not!

Following Vincent in Brixton and The Reporter, Nicholas Wright's new play is a funny and
fascinating tribute to the Eastern European immigrants who became major players in
Hollywood's golden age. The award-winning Antony Sher  whose previous work with the
National Theatre includes Primo and Stanley  returns to play Jacob.
