As part of its NT Live programme, the National Theatre is opening its amazing film archives for the month of April and streaming a new play, free, every Thursday.
This is a brilliant opportunity to watch something new while in this period of social distancing, as well as experience something new – many people do not live in London and rarely (if ever) find the opportunity to visit the National Theatre. Now, here’s your chance.
Each Thursday at 7pm a play will be streamed as part of the series National Theatre At Home. The schedule is as follows:
- ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’ by Richard Bean, starring James Corden.
- ‘Jane Eyre’, adapted by Sally Cookson.
- ‘Treasure Island’, adapted by Bryony Lavery.
- ‘Twelfth Night’ by William Shakespeare, starring Tamsin Greig.
How to Watch
You can watch the stream live, for free, on Thursday evenings from the National Theatre YouTube channel. Be sure to bookmark it.
Afterwards, each performance will remain on YouTube for 7 days, so you can watch at a time that’s convenient for you or relive your favourite performances a second time.
