The Sedona International Film Festival has teamed up with the National Theatre of London for the launch of National Theatre At Home, an initiative designed to continue to engage our audiences in their homes during this period of confinement.
As part of this, the National Theatre will be releasing one back catalogue National Theatre Live title per week across April and May on the National Theatre YouTube channel. These titles will be free to stream, and be available for one week only.
This week’s free National Theatre of London’s free virtual screening is Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” from the company’s 2016-2017 season.
This free streaming is limited to seven days per title and the National Theatre has tried to prioritize titles that have benefitted from great theatrical success already.
Tamsin Greig is Malvolia in a new twist on Shakespeare’s classic comedy of mistaken identity “Twelfth Night.”
A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love.
The nearby households of Olivia and Orsino are overrun with passion. Even Olivia’s upright housekeeper Malvolia is swept up in the madness.
Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible.
Simon Godwin directs this joyous new production with Tamsin Greig as a transformed Malvolia.
The ensemble cast also includes Daniel Rigby, Tamara Lawrence, Doon Mackichan and Daniel Ezra.“Twelfth Night” will be streamed free of charge on the National Theatre at Home YouTube channel now through Wednesday, April 29.
