The Kitchen follows One Man, Two Guvnors, which screened on the NCM network Oct. 20. Described as Arnold Wesker's "extraordinary black comedy," The Kitchen, directed by Bijan Sheibani, is set in a restaurant in 1950s London and features an ensemble cast of 29 actors.

Collaborators, a new play by John Hodge, will follow Dec. 1. Directed by Hytner, the play centers on an imaginary encounter between Joseph Stalin and the playwright Mikhail Bulgakov. Alex Jennings will play Bulgakov, and Simon Russell Beale will play Stalin.

William Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, directed by Dominic Cooke, artistic director of London’s Royal Court Theatre, will hit theatres March 1, 2012, and star actor-comedian Lenny Henry in his National Theatre debut.

Since NT Live's first season, which began in June 2009 with Phédre starring Helen Mirren, over half-a-million people have experienced the National’s acclaimed work on movie screens around the world.
