1. NT Live: A Midsummer Night’s Dream – October 13

Shakespeare's delightfully whimsical fantasy-comedy famously observed that "the course of true love never did run smooth". Now the National Theatre's acclaimed staging returns to Cineworld screens, captured at the Bridge Theatre in London with Game of Thrones' Gwendoline Christie as the imperious Titania. Nicholas Hytner directs and transforms the environment of the theatre into a living, breathing forest where anything can happen.

This three-part story of a family company that changed the entire world comes from Oscar-winning Skyfall and 1917 director Sam Mendes.

3. NT Live: Present Laughter – November 10

Sherlock star Andrew Scott collaborates with director Matthew Warchus in this sparkling adaptation of the Noel Coward classic. When actor Gary Essendine's life starts to spiral out of control, he finds himself engulfed by an identity and relationship crisis that is as pointed and perceptive as it is amusing.

4. NT Live: All My Sons – November 24

Screen veterans Bill Pullman and Sally Field headline Arthur Miller's scorching drama of family relationships. Beginning in 1947, All My Sons zeroes in on a stable American family whose existence is rocked by wartime loss and skeletons in the closet. Jeremy Herron directs this adaptation, which was captured at the historic Old Vic Theatre in London.

5. NT Live: Fleabag – December 8

Phoebe Waller-Bridge's painfully perceptive, and painfully funny, one-woman show Fleabag eventually gave rise to the critically acclaimed TV series of the same name. Now's your chance to return to where it all began, the original production that played to sell-out crowds in both London and New York. With its spot-on observations about relationships and messiness of modern life, you'll nod, cringe and laugh in equal measure.
