A Streetcar Named Desire – National Theatre at Home
Gillian Anderson (All About Eve, The X-Files, The Fall, Sex Education) plays Blanche DuBois with Ben Foster (Lone Survivor, Kill Your Darlings) as Stanley and Vanessa Kirby (Julie, The Crown, Mission Impossible) as Stella. As Blanche’s fragile world crumbles, she turns to her sister Stella for solace – but her downward spiral brings her face to face with the brutal, unforgiving Stanley Kowalski. This critically acclaimed production was filmed live on stage at the Young Vic in 2014 by National Theatre Live. You can watch A Streetcar Named Desire from Thursday 21 May 7pm on the National Theatre’s YouTube channel, then on demand for one week until Thursday 28 May 7pm, but you'll need to start watching by 3.30pm UK time on 28 May to ensure you see it all.
