The National Theatre has always been a provider of quality British theatre, with productions which have been praised around the world. With the advent of NTLive in 2009, audiences outside of London had their first chance to see shows streamed (and then re-broadcast) direct from the National’s amply-equipped stages.

You can subscribe, rent or gift plays from their repertoire, with new plays being made available each month, including what promises to be some fascinating choices from their extensive show archive.
