One of the great, generous-hearted and ingenious comedies of the English language, Oliver Goldsmith’s classic play offers a celebration of chaos, courtship and the dysfunctional family.

The National Theatre's 2011-12 Season of NT Live in HD theater, direct from London, continues with Nicolas Wright's new play, "Travelling Light." Showtime is 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 6 at the Newport Performing Arts Center, located at 777 W.

How had a 22-year-old pretentious layabout made a discovery that would elude everyother cinematic pioneer for years to come?
 
In a remote village in Eastern Europe, around 1900, the young Motl Mendl is  entranced by the flickering silent images on his father’s cinematograph. Bankrolled by Jacob, the ebullient local timber merchant, and inspired by Anna, the girl sent to help him make moving pictures of their village, he stumbles on a revolutionary way of story-telling. Forty years later, Motl – now a famed American film director – looks back on his early life and confronts the cost of fulfilling his dreams.
 
Following Vincent in Brixton and The Reporter, Wright’s new play is a funny and fascinating tribute to the Eastern European immigrants who became major players in Hollywood’s golden age. The award-winning Antony Sher – whose previous work with the National Theatre includes Primo and Stanley – returns to play Jacob.

Run time is approximately 3 hours, with one intermission.

'The Comedy of Errors' is next at 7 p.m. March 23

See the National Theatre's "The Comedy of Errors" at 7 p.m. Friday, March 23 at the Newport Performing Arts Center.Two sets of twins separated at birth collide in the same city without meeting for one crazy day, as multiple mistaken identities lead to confusion on a grand scale. And for no one more so than Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant Dromio who, in search of their brothers, arrive in a land entirely foreign to their distant home. A buzzing metropolis, to the outsiders it appears a place of wonderment and terror, where baffling gifts and unexplained hostilities abound. 
 
Showtime is 7 p.m. Friday, Mar. 23 at the Newport Performing Arts Center. "The Comedy of Errors" is hosted by Sandra Litt.
