Excellent!  These are just what we need.

DESPITE the lockdown, drama lovers can still enjoy a night at the theatre - from the comfort of their own homes!

A selection of much-loved National Theatre Live productions to be made available to watch online for free over the next two months.

While a raft of upcoming shows - including the The Welkin in May at theatres and cinemas in Bangor, Prestatyn, Llandudno Junction or Colwyn Bay - have now been cancelled, from Thursday, April 2 a number of previously screened productions will return via the National Theatre’s YouTube channel. The first production to be broadcast as part of 'NATIONAL THEATRE AT HOME' will be Richard Bean’s One Man Two Guvnors featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from James Corden.

One Man, Two Guvnors
Featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from James Corden as Francis Henshall in this hilarious West End and Broadway hit.

 8)            8)

After a terrible journey , full of delays, from London to Glasgow, an old chap arrived in Central station very late, exhausted, feeling dirty and hungry, completely fed up, no taxis, nobody about, after a few minutes of walking he noticed a glow in a window, on getting closer he found it was a massage parlor, and thought just what I need,  very helpful young woman allows him to shower, then starts with the massage, fantastic oils and aromas, he relaxed and began to feel a lot better, when she finished, he was surprised when she bent down whispered in his ear, would you like super sex, he thought for a moment, then said, although your massage was absolutely terrific, I am still tired, so if it is all the same to you, I'll just have the soup, thank you.            ;)       ;)
