The National Theatre is now showing the third of its online productions, initially live-streamed on a Thursday night and then available on YouTube for the following week.
The production currently available, until 23 April, is Treasure Island, Robert Louis Stevenson’s story of murder, money and mutiny. Brought to life in this thrilling stage adaptation featuring Arthur Darvill as Long John Silver.
The new production streaming from 7.00pm this Thursday (23 April) will be Twelfth Night featuring Tamsin Greig as Malvolia (which is fantastic. I saw it live. Tamsin Greig makes it a joy to watch).
The National Theatre has also added its collection of 30 world-class productions, free to stream at home for UK state-funded teachers and pupils, including Macbeth, Othello, Twelfth Night, King Lear, Medea, Antigone, The Cherry Orchard, A Streetcar Named Desire and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
