National Theatre Collection

This fall the National Theatre launched National Theatre Collection, a dynamic new online education platform which enables National Theatre Live broadcasts and rarely seen production recordings from their London archive to be streamed directly to classrooms, libraries and universities in the US and around the world. 


This program goes to the core of the National’s belief, that great theatre should be available to everyone.


We need your help to make theatre for everyone a reality.


Contributions from people like you play a pivotal role in the success of the National Theatre and programs like NT Collection. Your gift, no matter the size, makes a difference and allows the National to continue making their world-class programs of work, on stage and on screen, available to as many people as possible.


“This collection reflects the rich and diverse spectrum of British theatre over the past decades and will now be accessible to students and teachers worldwide for the first time ever. We hope that this new platform will open up the National Theatre to students, teachers and theatre-makers across the globe, whilst also ensuring that drama remains an integral part of a broad education.”

Rufus Norris, Artistic Director, National Theatre
