The National Theatre will stream some of its NT Live production for free on YouTube from 2nd April.
The initiative will kick off with Richard Bean’s One Man Two Guvnors starring James Corden.
All the productions will be free and screened live every Thursday at 7.00pm. They will then be available on demand for seven days on the NT’s YouTube channel.
Sally Cookson’s Jane Eyre will screen on 9th April, Bryony Lavery’s Treasure Island adaptation starring Arthur Darvill on 16th April and Twelfth Night with Tamsin Greig on 23rd April. Further tiles are to be announced.
The National Theatre said, “We have delved into the National Theatre Live archive and curated a programme that’s varied from comedy to new dramas to classics so there is something for everyone to enjoy from their own homes. We will be streaming each production at the same time each week in order to recreate, where possible, the communal viewing experience and we hope this will be an opportunity for people to share their enjoyment together online.”
