National Theatre at Home: Les Blancs
Thursday, July 2 @ 20:00 - Thursday, July 9 @ 20:00
An African country teeters on the edge of civil war. A society prepares to drive out its colonial present and claim an independent future. Tshembe, returned home from England for his father’s funeral, finds himself in the eye of the storm.
Yaël Farber (Mies Julie, Nirbhaya) directs the final play by Lorraine Hansberry (A Raisin in the Sun): a brave, illuminating and powerful work that confronts the hope and tragedy of revolution.
This play is about imperialism, racism, and colonialism and contains some scenes of racially motivated violence, that some people may find distressing.

At a time when you aren’t able to visit National Theatre Live venues or local theatres, we’re excited to bring you National Theatre at Home.
You can watch Les Blancs as part of National Theatre at Home from 7pm on Thursday 2 July on the National Theatre’s YouTube channel, then on demand for one week until 7pm on Thursday 9 July, but you’ll need to start watching by 4.15pm on 9 July to see it all.
