National Theatre Live: details of tonight’s production

Share this Article:

This House, an acclaimed National Theatre play about 1970s politics, will be available for free streaming from 7pm tonight.

The excellent National Theatre At Home programme continues this week, as it has been doing right throughout lockdown in the UK. The basics are that in those halcyon days when cinemas were open, the National Theatre would beam productions to screens, to open up accessibility to the plays and shows it staged. As such, a sizeable archive of filmed shows has been built up, and these are being released each week on the National Theatre YouTube channel.

Tonight, then, we’re getting This House, described as “a timely, moving and funny insight into the workings of 1970s British politics”.

The acclaimed play was directed by Jeremy Herrin, and written by Jamie Graham. It begins streaming tonight a 7pm. As per usual, you then have seven days to watch the production, before it’s removed and replaced by another play this time next week.

The play will appear below at 7pm, then, else of course you can click through straight to the YouTube channel.

One more thing: the introductory notes for the production are here.
