National Theatre At Home: A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE

London's National Theatre Live continues it's presentions of free full-length plays, via YouTube, with A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, starting on May 21.

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.

More information and learning resources can be found on the National Theatre at Home web page.

This show will be available on the National Theatre YouTube Channel.


To provide some entertainment for theatre fans while they're not able to visit their venues, National Theatre will release one of their past recorded-live titles each week though out April and May. Each play will be available to watch on YouTube for one week, starting on a Thursday at 2pm (7pm UK time)
