The National Theatre continues to expand its line-up of digital plays available to stream with A Midsummer Night’s Dream and All My Sons added this week.
The streaming service, which was launched at the end of last year, brings together a range of stage productions to stream worldwide, from plays that are part of the NT’s archive to others broadcast to cinemas as part of National Theatre Live. New productions are added monthly, and June sees two arrive.
A Midsummer Night’s Drea mwas captured live at the Bridge Theatre in 2019. Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy sees Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (One Man, Two Guvnors), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun (Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom. This production reunites the team responsible for the 2018 smash hit Julius Caesar, including Tony and Olivier award-winning director Nicholas Hytner (The History Boys, One Man, Two Guvnors), and is once again filmed on the ground from the perspective of the audience watching the immersive production.
Also added to the platform is The Old Vic and Headlong’s production of All My Sons, Arthur Miller’s blistering drama. Captured live at The Old Vic in 2019, Jeremy Herrin directs Academy Award-winner Sally Field and Bill Pullman as Joe and Kate Keller. The cast also includes Jenna Coleman (The Serpent) and Colin Morgan (The Fall).
They bring the total number of productions on the platform to 23, including Angels in America Parts One and Two with Andrew Garfield, Nathan Lane and Russell Tovey, the Young Vic’s Yerma with Billie Piper and Othello with Adrian Lester and Rory Kinnear.
All productions on National Theatre at Home are available with captions.
National Theatre at costs £9.99 a month, with titles also available to rent from £5.99 to £8.99 each.
