NT Live - UK's National Theater
Broadcast Live

A Disappearing Number

NT Live is a groundbreaking initiative by the UK’s National Theatre to broadcast live performances of plays onto cinema screens around the world. See plays put on by one of the most prestigious theaters in the world right here in Hudson – without the airfare. The NT stage performance will be filmed live in high definition and broadcast via satellite to movie theatres and performing arts centers throughout the UK and Europe, and on a time-delay basis to sites in the US including Time & Space Limited.

TSL is excited to confirm the first details for the fifth season of National Theatre of London that will launch in September, 2013. Note: the National plans its repertoire with comparatively short lead times, which makes it difficult to announce all the dates for the season far in advance. Stay tuned.

Reserve your tickets, and come join us for these outstanding performances.

Tickets are $22 for adults and $15 for students. Tickets go on sale August 19th, box office hours M-F 10 am - 4 pm. For more information call 518-822-8448 or email

A Small Family Business

A riotous exposure of entrepreneurial greed by Olivier Award-winning playwright Alan Ayckbourn (Bedroom Farce, A Chorus of Disapproval). A Small Family Business returns to the National Theatre for the first time since its celebrated premiere in 1987, when it won the Evening Standard Award for Best Play.

Jack McCracken: a man of principle in a corrupt world. But not for long. Moments after taking over his father-in-law's business he's approached by a private detective armed with some compromising information. Jack's integrity fades away as he discovers his extended family to be thieves and adulterers, looting the business from their suburban homes. Rampant self-interest takes over and comic hysteria builds to a macabre climax.
