Virtual Theatre

Yesterday my sister sent me this information, received from her local W.I.


The National Theatre is releasing a filmed version of one of their plays each Thursday.


Currently playing is ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’ by Richard Bean, starring James Corden. Website link: .https://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/nt-at-home


The schedule for the following three weeks is :

April 9 ‘Jane Eyre’, adapted by Sally Cookson.
April 16 ‘Treasure Island’, adapted by Bryony Lavery.
April 23 ‘Twelfth Night’ by William Shakespeare, starring Tamsin Greig.




It seems they even have a subtitle facility for those of us with hearing problems.

I am going to give these a try.

  1. It's amazing. Everyone is suddenly releasing versions of their plays, musicals etc. I wish that I had the time to watch some of them. All this lockdown is making me do so many jobs I've not done for the last few years that my days are busier than ever.

    1. As I no longer watch TV this could be an entertaining way for me to spend an evening.

    1. It's a rare treat for us, being so far from London's Theatreland, to enjoy a decent play. I hope these are good!

  3. A bit of culture for the great unwashed like myself😊. I am only joking. It's a wonderful idea.

    2. Our baths outside are full of growing vegetables and we keep coal in the one in the bathroom. I am wondering whether to chop up the bathroom door to keep us warm?

    3. You could drill holes in the roof of the polytunnel and have an outdoor shower?
