National Theatre at Home: Grenfell: in the words of survivors

Streaming for $10.

In 2020, London's lauded National Theatre launched its own streaming service featuring professional stage captures of its productions. While you can buy a subscription, shows are also available to rent individually. New to the roster is Grenfell: in the words of survivors, a searing docudrama about the Grenfell Tower fire in London, which killed dozens of people and could have been prevented. A 72-hour rental costs $10 and captions are available. Prefer to see the show in person? It's coming to Brooklyn's St. Ann's Warehouse in April. It's just one of many fantastic National Theatre shows you can stream, so be sure to browse the entire list.
