Lisa Burger, Executive Director and Joint Chief Executive of the National Theatre, said: “I am delighted to announce the return to cinemas of National Theatre Live with four new productions bringing the best of British theatre back into cinemas.

“Over the last year, while theatres and cinemas have been closed around the world, it’s been brilliant to share National Theatre Live recordings through National Theatre at Home. The audience response has shown us the huge appetite for these productions which now stretch back over 12 years.

“But it’s so great to be able to share theatre as a communal experience in cinemas once again. So, whether you come to watch a show live on the South Bank, visit a venue across the UK, book into your local cinema or tune in from home, there are now more ways than ever to experience the National’s work.”
