    • However, it was given another release in American cinemas in late 2013, and yet another in 2014, on Halloween week due to popular demand.
  • Sleeper Hit: Out of all the plays shown in cinemas as part of the National Theatre Live program this has to be the most popular; it keeps getting a rerelease in cinemas every year after it's intial debut in 2011, and there have been constant requests for the filmed versions to be put on home video.
