National Theatre at Home

  • George Bushaway

National Theatre at Home was a response to the pandemic and effort from the organisation to bring people closer through theatre and storytelling. The National Theatre streamed 16 of its landmark productions from its National Theatre Live recordings for free via youtube so people all over the world could connect through theatre and served as donation platform to help support the organisation through this crisis to ensure we can continue to bring world class theatre for everyone How can I see more filmed live plays like those you’ve put on YouTube? The plays streaming for free on YouTube were filmed live on stage by National Theatre Live which is the broadcast arm of the National Theatre. We capture some of the best British plays and share them to cinema screens around the world. You will be able to see our plays back on cinema screens soon, when it is safe to do so, and some are announcing screening dates now - visit to find out where. To keep in touch with the latest news, sign up to National Theatre Live’s monthly eNewsletter. If you’re a venue with a cinema screen and you're interested in featuring National Theatre Live plays as part of your programme, you can contact our team here: For the United Kingdom, email: For countries further abroad, visit
