The National Theatre has announced that the Young Vic’s critically acclaimed 2017 production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and the National Theatre and Out of Joint 2017 co-production of Consent have both now been added to the National Theatre at Home streaming service.
The Young Vic’s 2017 West End production of Tennessee Williams’ searing drama Cat on a Hot Tin Roof was directed by Benedict Andrews (A Streetcar Named Desire) with Sienna Miller as Maggie, Jack O’Connell as Brick and Colm Meaney as Big Daddy.
Nina Raine’s play Consent premiered in the Dorfman Theatre in 2017, a co-production between the National Theatre and Out of Joint. Following a sold-out run at the National Theatre it transferred to the Harold Pinter Theatre in 2018. The acclaimed production of this challenging and funny play features the original cast including Anna Maxwell Martin and Daisy Haggard.
Also announced today, as part of the NT’s partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies to broaden access to world-leading institutions and offerings is the National Theatre’s guide on the Bloomberg Connects app. The NT becomes the first performing art organisation to join the app which provides access to museums, galleries, and cultural spaces around the world anytime through digital guides, content from artists, curators, and experts.
