The National Theatre’s cinema screenings programme is heading to homes, starting with One Man, Two Guvnors.

Well, here’s some good news at least. Over the past few years, those who have been unable to see National Theatre productions in person have had the chance to see them beamed and repeated in cinemas, as part of the National Theatre Live programme.

Obviously, as things stand, that’s not going to be possible for the foreseeable future, But instead, each week, the National Theatre will be making available on a Thursday one of its productions free of charge. It’ll then be available for streaming for seven days, before another show premieres.

Things kick off on Thursday April 2nd at 7pm, with the hugely acclaimed production of One Man, Two Guvnors, starring James Corden. Here’s the trailer for that…

But there’s more, too.

From April 9th, the National Theatre production of Jane Eyre will premiere, on April 16th it’s Treasure Island, and then Tamsin Grieg headlines Twelfth Night from April 23rd.

There will all appear at the National Theatre YouTube channel, here.

Furthermore, the National Theatre archive of productions usually available via subscription to schools has now been opened up to pupils of UK state-funded schools. That gets you streaming access to 24 fully-filmed National Theatre plays. You can find out more right here.
