First promotional image of Cate Blanchett’s National Theatre debut play

Hello folks!

Great news today!

The National Theatre has released the first promotional image for When we have sufficiently tortured each other: Twelve Variations on Samuel Richardson’s Pamela featuring Cate Blanchett. The online ballot to get tickets for the performance will begin on Thursday. Don’t miss this chance! Good luck Blanchetters!

The Aussie acting ledge is making her NT debut. Think you can’t get in? Don’t lose hope: here are your best bets for bagging a gold-dust ticket

What is it?

International movie star and all-round Aussie legend Cate Blanchett will be starring in a new play at the National Theatre, entitled ‘When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other’, opposite Stephen Dillane (of ‘Game of Thrones’ and more).

How popular will it be?

Blanchett’s name would no doubt shift all the tickets in a jiffy and crash all the servers for the best part of a day if the play’s six-week run was in the NT’s huge Olivier theatre. But it’s in fact at the 450-seat Dorfman, the NT’s smallest venue, so, er, go figure.

How do I get tickets?

It’s pretty simple: there will be no conventional sale. Instead, from noon on Thursday (November 22) to noon the following Thursday (November 29) you can go to the NT website and register for an online ballot. Names will be drawn from the electronic ‘hat’ on Friday November 30. Winners will be given the chance to purchase up to two tickets in the conventional fashion (members will get to book first). It’s a similar system to the one adopted by Tom Hiddleston’s ‘Hamlet’ and the last Punchdrunk show – a lot of people will be disappointed, but at least it’ll be ‘fair’ in terms of the chance of buying a ticket.

Er, what’s the actual play again?

Good question! It’s avant-garde playwright Martin Crimp and avant-garde director Katie Mitchell teaming up to direct what is presumably going to be a fairly leftfield play that explores the nature of desire, and is apparently inspired by Samuel Richardson’s 1740 novel, ‘Pamela’. There has been some grumbling from Mitchell stans that Blanchett’s presence is likely to stop them seeing their hero’s latest endeavour. Which may be true, but don‘t let that stop you applying for tickets. Just bear in mind if you win them that you’ll probably need to brace yourself for what’s likely to be a fairly challenging night of theatre.

Is there any other way of getting tickets?

Yes: a number of cheap day-seats for each evening’s show will be released at the NT’s box office, in person only, at 9.30am each morning. It’ll be first come, first served – the odds are you will have to queue from the early hours of the morning. But if you want to see it – you can.

‘When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other’ is at the National Theatre, Dorfman. Jan 16-Mar 2 2019.

Hello Blanchetters!

It has been a quiet week considering how busy Cate has been for the last few weeks. Today we are posting content released during the week; first IndieWire released an interview with greek director Yorgos Lanthimos, who confessed Cate has reached out and wants to work with him. Maybe this is Cate’s next big collaboration? We’ll see! Meanwhile, here’s a fragment of the interview:

But there’s one major actor who has been eager to work with Lanthimos long before he made inroads to English-language productions. “Cate Blanchett was the first one that reached out,” Lanthimos said, in an interview with IndieWire from New York, while promoting the upcoming release of “The Favourite” and recalling the immediate aftermath of “Dogtooth.” “I’m still in contact with Cate, and we are trying to do something together.”
Blanchett has yet to speak publicly of her affinity for Lanthimos’ work, and representatives for the actress declined to comment. Nevertheless, a collaboration with Lanthimos would be a natural gamble for the A-list performer, whose stable of auteur collaborators includes Woody Allen, Terrence Malick, Todd Haynes, and Martin Scorsese. Lanthimos and Blanchett have overlapped at festivals in recent years: “The Lobster” was in competition at Cannes the same year as Haynes’ “Carol,” and Blanchett was spotted at the Venice International Film Festival premiere of “The Favourite” in late August.
“I’ve been so fortunate to work with great directors,” she told IndieWire in 2013. “In the end, I think that’s driving the conversation.”
Lanthimos added that Weisz reached out to him shortly after he heard from Blanchett — and as the cast of “The Favourite” proves, they weren’t the only actresses drawn to his work. “It was mostly women who reached out,” he said. “I don’t know what that says about my work, the work they were getting, or about male actors.” Regardless, he welcomed them into his domain. “It is true that the way the system works, you need name actors in order to put things together when you make English-language films,” he said. “I took great care in making sure that all these people reaching out wanted to be a part of it because of what the work was, not because something different might happen, and that they actually appreciated the work.”
