Life in Stages S1 Ep2: Jessie Buckley and Josh O’Connor in conversation at the National Theatre


Josh O’Connor and Jessie Buckley share their lives in theatre memories, from transforming childhood homes into stages to recently starring in the National Theatre's film of Romeo & Juliet. The two friends interview one another and reveal the stories behind their lives on the stage.

Life in Stages is the National Theatre’s brand-new interview series profiling some of the biggest names in British theatre on YouTube with new episodes released on Thursdays 7pm BST. The series began with Olivia Colman and Rufus Norris as our guests on 22 April 2021.

Filmed on the empty Lyttelton stage, each episode features a pair of creatives reflecting on their stage careers, and revealing the funny, personal and poignant stories behind everything from their earliest theatre memory to their biggest professional highs and lows.
