The National Theater has launched a new way for the public to access its productions online while it is closed.

National Theater At Home offers content including NT Live productions available for free viewing on YouTube and resources from the National Theater Collection that are made available online for schools and universities.

A selection of NT Live productions, recordings of theatrical performances that have previously been shown in cinemas, will be made available on the National Theater’s YouTube channel from next Thursday (April 2). Productions are shown every Thursday at 19:00 and then available for seven days.

The program so far:

  • April 2: Richard Bean’s One Man Two Guvnors, with James Corden.
  • April 9: Sally Cookson’s adaptation of Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre
  • April 16: Bryony Lavery’s adaptation of Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
  • April 23: Twelfth night, played by Tamsin Greig

Further productions will be announced in due course – we optimistically cross our fingers for Fleabag – along with projections of pre-recorded question and answer sessions with writers and performers.

Live performances at the National Theater will not resume before July, and although the screenings are free, there is an opportunity to offer financial support through a donation section on the National Theater At Home website.
