NATIONAL THEATRE: 50 YEARS ON STAGE


An unmissable special event for theatre lovers everywhere!

Truly once-in-a-lifetime event: never before has a cast of this calibre, talent and history graced any stage in the world.

Interspersed with the live performances on stage at the Olivier Theatre, there are on-screen gem excerpts from the National Theatre’s extensive archives including the stunning Maggie Smith from 1964 in Noel Coward’s Hay Fever (absolutely hilarious!), Paul Schofield in Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus from 1979 (extraordinary), as well as interviews from the actors performing talking about their roles in the 50th Anniversary celebrations.
