National Theatre at Home is bringing culture to your couch and has been adding new plays to its online collection. If you haven’t yet included theatre in your viewing schedule, start with A Streetcar Named Desire. Available for one week from Thursday, May 21st, this Tennessee Williams classic stars Gillian Anderson, Vanessa Kirby and Ben Foster, and was originally staged in 2014, earning rave reviews.

Stath Lets Flats is the BAFTA award winning comedy that follows hapless Stath as he tries to let flats (you probably worked that out from the title, didn’t you?)
