National Theatre guide
A guide to London's theatre institution, including reviews, what's on and ticket information
Last year, when the NT put its big Olivier Christmas show on sale early, things didn't go so well – Richard Bean's script for 'The Count of Monte Cristo' was (according to Bean) deemed unstageable, and a last minute replacement play had to be found. Fingers crossed things go a little more smoothly this time around with the somewhat less audacious prospect of Carl Miller's's adaptation of German satirist Erich Kästner's 1929 kids' novel 'Emil und die Detektive'.

The concrete-clad, 1960s modernist grandmother of them all: no theatrical tour of London is complete without a visit to the National, which offers a rolling repertory programme, often with a choice of several productions in a week.
