We are very pleased to announce that we will continue to show National Theatre Live and other streamed events. Below are details of the Spring/Summer season 2018.
A ground breaking initiative broadcasting the best of British theatre to cinema and arts venues around the world live, via satellite. It has been a huge hit in the UK and will now be a regular feature from September 2016 at the Courthouse. Occasional ‘Encore’ performances will be included in the mix when the Courthouse has an unavoidable date clash – but these offer the audience exactly the same experience as the live streamed events.
Keep checking our website for new productions and releases coming soon.
