THE National Theatre’s production of Jane Eyre will be shown on the National Theatre’s You Tube channel tonight (Thursday, April 9) at 7pm as part of National Theatre at Home.

Almost 170 years on, Charlotte Brontë’s story of the trailblazing Jane is as inspiring as ever. This bold and dynamic production uncovers one woman’s fight for freedom and fulfilment on her own terms.

This acclaimed re-imagining of Brontë's masterpiece was first staged by Bristol Old Vic in 2015 and transferred to the National Theatre in the same year with a revival in 2017.

During this unprecedented time, which has seen the closure of theatres, cinemas and schools, National Theatre at Home is providing access to content online to serve audiences in their homes.

Audiences around the world can stream NT Live productions for free via YouTube every Thursday at 7pm and it will then be available on demand for seven days.

Following Jane Eyre, Bryony Lavery’s adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island will be screened on April 16 and Twelfth Night on April 23 featuring Tamsin Greig as Malvolia in Shakespeare's classic comedy, with further titles to be announced.

Alongside the streamed productions, National Theatre at Home will also feature accompanying interactive content such as Q&As with cast and creative teams and post-stream talks, with further details of this programme to be announced.

National Theatre Live turned ten on June 25 last year - the date of the first ever NT Live broadcast which was Phédre starring Academy Award® winner Helen Mirren.

During the past ten years more than 80 theatre productions have been shown in 3,500 venues worldwide, reaching an overall audience of more than 10 million people.
