National Theatre at Home: A Streetcar Named Desire

"I don’t want realism. I want magic!"

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.

BBFC rating 15 when released in cinema. Contains scenes featuring sexual violence and domestic abuse.
