Five Stars
“Out of this world. Ralph Fiennes flies high as Bernard Shaw’s Superman.”
- Metro

Academy Award® nominee Ralph Fiennes (The English Patient; Schindler’s List; Oedipus, staged at the National Theatre) plays Jack Tanner in this exhilarating reinvention of Shaw’s witty, provocative classic, and filmed live at the National Theatre.

A romantic comedy, an epic fairytale, a fiery philosophical debate, Man and Superman asks fundamental questions about how we live.

Jack Tanner, celebrated radical thinker and rich bachelor, seems an unlikely choice as guardian to the alluring heiress, Ann. In spite of the love of a poet, she takes it in her assured stride and decides to marry and tame this dazzling revolutionary. Tanner, appalled by the whiff of domesticity, is tipped off by his chauffeur and flees to Spain, where he is captured by bandits and meets The Devil. An extraordinary dream-debate, heaven versus hell, ensues. Following in hot pursuit, Ann is there when Tanner awakes, as fierce in her certainty as he is in his.

(3hrs 40mins, including 20min intermission)
