• National Theatre 50

    The National Theatre first opened its doors in 1963 at the Old Vic under Laurence Olivier. Eight hundred productions later, we are marking our half-century with a short season celebrating the remarkable people and plays that have made the NT one of the most cherished and creative of great British institutions.

    Wherever you are in the world, we hope you’ll join in the anniversary celebrations. Browse these pages to find out how you can take part.
