Free Plays from the National Theatre of London

As a public service during the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Theatre of London places a video of one of its live performances on YouTube for free for a week at a time. This week enjoy a production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, with Tamsin Grieg as "Malvolia," until Wednesday, April 30th, 7 p.m. UK time (That is noon Pacific Daylight Time).

Then starting noon Pacific Time on Wednesday the 30th, you can watch Benedict Cumberbatch and Johnny Lee Miller alternate roles in a production of Frankenstein directed by Danny Boyle, script by Nick Dear.

Next, starting May 7th, they return to Shakespeare with a performance of Anthony and Cleopatra starring Ralph Fiennes and Sophie Okonedo. (Both Shakespeare plays directed by Simon Godwin.)
