The new National Theatre Collection makes the best of British Theatre available worldwide to libraries, schools, universities and the wider education sector. Our unique collection presents high quality recordings of world-class productions, giving you the best seats in the house whenever you want.
From Shakespeare and Greek tragedy to contemporary literary adaptations, the Collection features productions from the National Theatre, as well as the Young Vic, Donmar Warehouse and Bridge Theatre.
The National Theatre Collection is available through Bloomsbury’s award-winning digital library Drama Online and as a stand-alone resource from renowned EdTech leader ProQuest. ProQuest will also integrate the collection in its popular Theatre and Drama Premium.
The National Theatre Collection is supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), Fondation Hoffmann, the Sidney E. Frank Foundation, The Cranshaw Corporation for Mrs. Robert I. MacDonald and The Attwood Education Foundation.
Students in UK state-funded schools can now access the NT Collection from home.
Following the announcement from the UK Government that all UK schools will close from 20 March in light of the Coronavirus pandemic, the National Theatre Collection, including 24 full filmed plays, will now be available to pupils and teachers at state schools and state-funded further education colleges via remote access in partnership with Bloomsbury Publishing. During this temporary period schools will be able to share log-in details with pupils to access resources at home.
Bloomsbury Publishing has also extended the free trial period for academic institutions including universities, libraries and independent schools until the end of May 2020 to continue to support the educational community across the globe.
