National Theatre at Home: This House
We’re all about experiencing theatre together.
At a time when many theatre fans around the world aren’t able to visit National Theatre Live venues or local theatres, we’re excited to introduce National Theatre At Home. You will be able to watch some of the best British theatre from the comfort of your living room, via YouTube for free, with each title available for one week.
It’s 1974, and Britain has a hung Parliament. The corridors of Westminster ring with the sound of infighting and backstabbing as the political parties battle to change the future of the nation. This House is a timely, moving and funny insight into the workings of British politics by James Graham (Ink, ITV’s Quiz) and directed by Jeremy Herrin (People, Places and Things). This much-loved production enjoyed two sold-out National Theatre runs, a West End transfer and national tour as well as being filmed by National Theatre Live. You can watch This House from 7pm UK time on Thursday 28 May until 7pm UK time on Thursday 4 June 2020. It was filmed live on stage at the National Theatre in 2013. The running time is 2 hours 40 minutes with a very short interval. It is subtitled. The play is suitable for ages 14+ with some strong language throughout.
