National Theatre Collection

The National Theatre Collection makes the best of British Theatre available worldwide to libraries, schools, universities and the wider education sector. Free to UK state schools.

The Collection is available on Bloomsbury’s award-winning digital library Drama Online and as a stand-alone resource from renowned EdTech leader ProQuest. The National Theatre Collection is also available in ProQuest's popular Theatre and Drama Premium package.

We added 20 new productions to the NT Collection in February 2022, bringing the total number of productions to 50. As a UK state school no re-registration is necessary and the new titles will be added to your subscription automatically. Paid users will need to top-up their subscription to access the new titles.

All of our recordings include captions.
