National Theatre At Home: introducing Treasure Island

Have you heard about National Theatre At Home? It's the brilliant new way of streaming the best live productions into your own front room – entirely for free.

Every Thursday at 7PM UK time, they will be releasing one NT Live title on the National Theatre’s YouTube channel that can be watched for free, on-demand for seven days only.

It's exactly what we all need during this time of stringent, nationwide lockdowns. This week, we're introducing Robert Louis Stevenson adaptation Treasure Island, including all the details of where you can stream it.

What is the story of Treasure Island?

Grab those cutlasses, don those eyepatches and stash that gold, because Robert Louis Stevenson's epochal swashbuckling tale comes to your screens.

NT Live's adaptation of Stevenson's classic 1883 novel focuses on young Jim Hawkins, who falls in with a band of bloodthirsty mutineers who are seeking buried treasure. Prepare for an onslaught of classic characters, namely the duplicitous Long John Silver, one of the greatest creations in all of literature.

How long is Treasure Island available to stream for?

It is available to stream for one week from Thursday 16th April.

Where can we stream Treasure Island?
