With the Coronavirus continuing to wreak havoc on the world’s populace and shelter-in-place orders being extended through the end of April (and possibly longer), it doesn’t look like our nation’s theaters are going to be opening back up anytime soon. Thankfully, the National Theatre in London is stepping up to help us get our theatre fix from the comfort and safety of our own homes.
Every Thursday night during the month of April, the National Theatre will stream a new play on its YouTube channel free of charge. Each play will become available to stream at 7pm GMT/1pm CST and will be available to watch anytime during the next seven days. Here is the lineup for the month of April:
April 2: “One Man, Two Guvnors” by Richard Bean, starring James Corden.
April 9: “Jane Eyre”, adapted by Sally Cookson.
April 16: “Treasure Island”, adapted by Bryony Lavery.
April 23: “Twelfth Night” by William Shakespeare, starring Tamsin Greig.
