NEWS: National Theatre Announces Final Shows Streaming on Youtube

The following week, on the 25th June the Bridge Theatre’s production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be shown. The cast includes Hammed Animashaun, Oliver Chris, Gwendoline Christie and David Moorst.

On the 2nd July, the 2016 production of  Lorraine Hansberry’s Les Blancs, directed by Yaël Farber will be presented. It stars Danny Sapani, Sheila Atim, and Tunji Kasim.

This will then be followed by The Deep Blue Sea starring Helen McCrory on the 9th July, while the 16th July will see Amadeus, with Lucian Msamati playing Antonio Salieri marking the end of the series.  

All of the shows will be available to watch for a week after initially streamed, through the National Theatre’s Youtube channel.
