London's National Theatre (NT) is offering free videos of selected live theatre productions starting on April 3 at 8 PM local time, on NT's Youtube.com channel under the banner 'National Theatre at Home'.

In the original post for this event, I suggested 10 PM on Thursday, April 2. However, since that's quite late I've now changed our viewing time to 8 PM on Friday, April 3. If this isn't convenient for someone, each weekly production remains available on NT's Youtube channel for one week so you can view it during the day or earlier in the evening if you prefer. The first performance will be available on the website until April 8. On April 9 at 10 PM., the second performance will be available. Perhaps we can arrange to view this second performance on April 10 at 8 PM. If this isn't a good time, please let me know.

You can arrange to have your favourite beverage and a snack on hand on Friday evening at 8 PM. After the performance, let's compare notes by leaving your comments on the Event wall. Does that sound OK?

There’s a definite emphasis on family-friendly good cheer for the line-up so far, which kicks off with a big hitter: Richard Bean’s beloved farce ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’.

The initial programme is:

April 3 ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’ by Richard Bean, starring James Corden.

April 10 ‘Jane Eyre’, adapted by Sally Cookson.

April 17 ‘Treasure Island’, adapted by Bryony Lavery.

April 24 ‘Twelfth Night’ by William Shakespeare, starring Tamsin Greig.
