Following it's UK premiere at the Liverpool Playhouse, world renowned DV8 Physical Theatre bring their powerful new production to the National Theatre for NT Live.

Lloyd Newson, DV8’s Artistic Director, interviewed more than 50 men over many months, asking them frank questions, initially about love and sex. One of those men was John.

What emerged was a story that is both extraordinary and touching. Years of crime, drug use and struggling to survive lead John on a search in which his life converges with others', in an unexpected place, unknown by most.

JOHN authentically depicts real-life stories, combining movement and spoken word to create an intense and moving theatrical experience.

Don’t miss this eagerly anticipated new production, broadcast live from the National Theatre.

Contains adult themes, strong language and nudity. Suitable for ages 18+
