Viola (Tamara Lawrence) is washed ashore after her ship crashes on the rocks. Determined to survive on her own without her twin Sebastian (Daniel Ezra), she steps out to explore a new land and so begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love.

The cast also includes Tamsin Grieg (Episodes, Green Wing), Doon Mackichan (Smack the Pony, Plebs), Phoebe Fox (The Hollow Crown) and Daniel Rigby (Eric and Ernie, One Man, Two Guvnors).

Spokeswoman Elaine Jones said: “During this unprecedented time which has seen the closure of theatres, cinemas and schools, National Theatre At Home is providing access to content online to serve audiences in their homes. Audiences around the world can stream NT Live productions for free via YouTube every Thursday at 7pm BST and it will then be available on demand for seven days.

“Alongside the streamed productions, National Theatre At Home will also feature accompanying interactive content such as Q&As with cast and creative teams and post-stream talks, with further details of this programme – along with other screenings to be announced.

“National Theatre Live turned ten on June 25 last year – the date of the first-ever NT Live broadcast which was Phedre starring Academy Award winner Helen Mirren. Over ten years over 80 theatre productions have been shown in 3,500 venues worldwide, reaching an overall audience of more than 10 million people.”
