The National Theatre has today announced the Bridge Theatre’s Julius Caesar is the latest filmed production to be added to its streaming service National Theatre at Home.
Directed by Nicholas Hytner (One Man, Two Guvnors, A Midsummer Night’s Dream), the Bridge Theatre’s critically acclaimed 2018 production of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar saw the audience surround the action in a dynamic, immersive and contemporary staging. The cast includes Ben Whishaw (Paddington, James Bond), Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones, Gangs of London), David Morrissey (The Missing, The Walking Dead), David Calder (Motherland, Rush) and Adjoa Andoh (Bridgerton, Line of Duty).
National Theatre at Home now has 19 productions to stream on the platform available at any time, including Angels in America Parts One and Two with Andrew Garfield, Nathan Lane and Russell Tovey, Medea with Helen McCrory and Michaela Coel, Mosquitoes with Olivia Colman and Olivia Williams, Phèdre with Helen Mirren and Dominic Cooper, the Young Vic’s Yerma with Billie Piper and Othello with Adrian Lester and Rory Kinnear. New productions are added monthly and, in addition to Julius Caesar, one other title is also due to be added later this month.
All productions on National Theatre at Home are available with captions. Julius Caesar will also be available with audio-description to support blind and partially sighted audiences worldwide. Nine other National Theatre at Home titles are currently available with audio-description: Angels in America Parts One and Two, Othello, Donmar Warehouse’s Coriolanus, The Cherry Orchard, Amadeus, Julie, Phèdre and the Young Vic’s Yerma and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
