A deeply moving drama that won the 2020 Sundance Grand Jury Prize. Years of carrying out death row executions have taken a toll on prison warden Bernadine Williams (a stunning performance from Alfre Woodard). As she prepares to execute another inmate, Bernadine must confront the psychological and emotional demons her job creates, ultimately connecting her to the man she is sanctioned to kill.
Masks or face coverings should be worn at all times by anyone over 11 in the bar and foyer. In line with government guidance, masks may be removed in the auditorium if you are consuming food or drinks.
"It’s a towering performance from Woodard, her career masterpiece, and she is first among equals in an outstanding cast" - ★★★★★The Guardian
"A talking-point performance, a ridiculously nuanced turn that will keep drama students occupied for years " - ★★★★★ The Times
