Cate Blanchett stars in Martin Crimp’s experimental new play. Subtitled 12 Variations on Samuel Richardson’s Pamela, it is billed as a “dangerous game of sexual domination and resistance,” played out by six characters in the intimate Dorfman Theatre. Stephen Dillane also stars and long-time Crimp associate Katie Mitchell directs.

Tickets were allocated by ballot but cheap day tickets are still available from 9.30 on the morning of each performance.

January 16 to March 2, National Theatre, London (020 7452 3000)
