We have a great selection of online content for you this week. From A Midsummer Night’s Dream to Macbeth and Peter Pan Live, there is plenty of fantastic theatre for you to enjoy from your own home.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

The Globe Theatre will be premiering their 2013 production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream from tonight (15 June), and it will be available to stream for 14 days.

Enjoy some of Shakespeare’s most dazzling dramatic poetry at the service of this teasing, glittering, hilarious and amazingly inventive play, whose seriousness is only fleetingly glimpsed beneath its dreamlike surface.

Watch from 15 June on The Globe’s YouTube channel here.

Small Island

This week, National Theatre at Home are sharing the epic, sold-out production of Andrea Levy’s novel Small Island.

Following three intricately connected stories, embark on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, through the Second World War to 1948 – the year the HMS Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury.

Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history between Jamaica and the UK.

Small Island is streaming from 7pm on Thursday 18 June here.

Catch up with the National Theatre at Home’s stream of The Madness of George III, directed by Adam Penford until Thursday here.

Peter Pan Live

Peter Pan Live, starring Christopher Walken and Allison Williams, will be streamed on The Shows Must Go On YouTube channel this Friday.

The 2014 televised version of the 1954 Broadway musical has music by Moose Charlap and Jule Styne, with lyrics by Carolyn Leigh, Betty Comden and Adolph Green. The 2014 production added new numbers and restored a song that had been cut from the show before its Broadway premiere.

Streaming from 7pm on Fri 19 June on YouTube here – it will be available for 48 hours.

Wise Children

Bristol Old Vic at Home are inviting viewers to indulge in this fabulous recording of this most theatrical of productions.

A big, bawdy tangle of joy and heartbreak, Wise Children is a celebration of show business, family, forgiveness and hope. Expect showgirls and Shakespeare, scandal, music, mischief and mistaken identity – and butterflies by the thousand.

Streaming 19 – 26 June at 7pm on Bristol Old Vic’s home page here.


The RSC’s 2016 production of Hamlet, directed by Simon Godwin and with Paapa Essiedu in the title role, will be broadcast at 9pm on BBC Four this Sunday as part of the Culture in Quarantine scheme.
