Our unique collection of 30 titles presents high quality recordings of world-class productions, including a wide range of works regularly studied at secondary / high school and degree level, giving you the best seats in the house whenever you want.
From Shakespeare and Greek tragedy to contemporary literary adaptations, the Collection features productions from the National Theatre, as well as the Young Vic, Donmar Warehouse and Bridge Theatre.
The National Theatre Collection is available via two models: a one-time payment for the full collection, or via an annual subscription.
The National Theatre Collection is available through Bloomsbury’s award-winning digital library Drama Online and as a stand-alone resource from renowned EdTech leader ProQuest. ProQuest will also integrate the collection in its popular Theatre and Drama Premium. It will transform the current landscape of theatre studies and digital learning by connecting students, researchers and teachers across the globe to world-class productions, archive materials and learning resources.
In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, Bloomsbury Publishing has extended its free trial period for academic institutions, such as universities, libraries and independent schools, until the end of June 2020, as they continue to support the educational community across the globe.
