Tuesday 14 February
6.30pm at National Theatre,  South Bank; free

about the script, went on to win five Academy Awards.
Hollywood legend claims that as a result of the scene in
which Gable undresses to reveal his bare chest, US sales of
men's undershirts declined noticeably. There will be limited
deckchair seating available on the Baylis Terrace and plenty
of room to sit on the floor. Bring warm blankets and
something comfy to sit on with your loved one.
