In November at the National's Lyttelton Theatre, Ivo van Hove will direct a new adaptation of Paddy Chayefsky's Oscar-winning Network.
Adapted for the stage by Lee Hall (Billy Elliot, The Pitmen Painters), it will star Tony Award winner Bryan Cranston (All the Way) as Howard Beale. A teaser trailer for the production, featuring stage and screen star Cranston, can be viewed above.
The production will also have set and lighting design by Jan Versweyveld, video design by Tal Yarden, costume design by An D’Huys, music by Eric Sleichim, and sound design by Tom Gibbons. It will be produced in association with Patrick Myles, David Luff, Ros Povey, and Lee Menzies.
