The Motive and the Cue

2023 3 hr, 1 int

Filmed live during a sold-out run at the National Theatre, Sam Mendes directs Mark Gatiss and Johnny Flynn as John Gielgud and Richard Burton in this fierce and funny new play. The year is 1964 and Burton, newly married to Elizabeth Taylor, is to play the title role in an experimental new Broadway production of Hamlet under John Gielgud’s exacting direction. But as rehearsals progress, two ages of theatre collide and the collaboration between actor and director soon threatens to unravel. Written by Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child).
