NT at Home Subtitles and Access provision


All of our plays and video content on National Theatre at Home have closed captioning for d/Deaf and hard of hearing audiences.

The captions will not appear on the plays or trailers automatically. You will need to turn them on each time you watch anything.

For more information about how to turn on captions, please visit the Vimeo Help Centre.

Audio Description

You can watch National Theatre plays Othello, Phedre, Amadeus and The Cherry Orchard, as well as Coriolanus from the Donmar Warehouse and Yerma from the Young Vic with Audio Description. War Horse is also available for a limited time of 1 month until 20 January in the UK only. 

Each Audio Described performance is accompanied by Intro Notes (in MP4 format) that describe the story, set, cast and costumes for audiences to listen to in advance of watching the production.

You can find more information about our Audio Description offer here.


War Horse is available with British Sign Language for a limited time of 1 month until 20 January in the UK only.  

We have made War Horse available as a pilot play for this new access provision. We will be working with our customers and industry stakeholders to gather feedback before making decisions about BSL programming in the future.
