The best seat – in your own home

Jayne Eyre production shotThe National Theatre building on the Southbank is closed to the public until at least 30 June, but it is streaming National Theatre Home – full-length plays filmed live – via YouTube.

James Corden in the brilliant 2011 production of the farce One Man, Two Guvnors has just made way for Jane Eyre.

The classic story of the trailblazing Jane is as inspiring as ever. The bold and dynamic production directed by Sally Cookson uncovers one woman’s fight for freedom and fulfilment on her own terms.

Jane Eyre faces life’s obstacles head-on, surviving poverty, injustice and the discovery of bitter betrayal before taking the ultimate decision to follow her heart.

This filmed performance of Jane Eyre was given a British Board of Film Classification rating of 12A and it contains some strong language.

Also scheduled for National Theatre Home are Treasure Island and Twelfth Night.
