NT Live productions to be screened on the National Theatre’s YouTube channel

FROM Thursday, April 2, 2020, a number of productions previously screened in cinemas globally as a part of National Theatre Live will be made available to watch via the National Theatre’s YouTube channel.

The first production to be broadcast as part of National Theatre At Home will be Richard Bean’s One Man, Two Guvnors (April 2 to April 9). Directed by Nicholas Hytner, it features a Tony Award-winning performance from James Corden.

Each production will be free and screened live every Thursday at 7pm GMT. It will then be available on demand for seven days.

Alongside the streamed productions, National Theatre At Home will also feature accompanying interactive content such as Q&As with cast and creative teams and post-stream talks. Further details will be announced in due course.

Other productions include Sally Cookson’s stage adaptation of Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre (April 9 – 16), Bryony Lavery’s adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island (April 16 – 23), and Shakespeare’s classic comedy Twelfth Night (April 23 – 30) starring Tamsin Greig as Malvolia. Further titles will be announced at a later date.
