National Theatre At Home: stream live productions for free
About This Event
Here's something to make self-isolation and social distancing much more bearable.
National Theatre Live is launching its brand new National Theatre At Home service, which will stream the best live productions and allow you to watch from the comfort of your own home.
Every Thursday at 7 pm UK time, they will be releasing one NT Live title on the National Theatre’s YouTube channel that can be watched for free, on-demand for seven days only.
For those who are missing the ability to visit their local theatres, this is the chance to experience the richness of live theatre production from your own front room, ranging from Shakespeare to literary adaptations.
The dates are as follows:
From Thursday 28th May – This House
From Thursday 4th June – Coriolanus
