The Young Vic’s production of Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire starring Gillian Anderson is to be streamed on YouTube on Thursday 21 May at 7pm BST as part of National Theatre at Home.
The 2014 NT Live broadcast of the Young Vic and Joshua Andrews co-production of Tennessee Williams’ timeless masterpiece A Streetcar Named Desire, directed by Benedict Andrews. The cast includes Gillian Anderson as Blanche, Ben Foster as Stanley and Vanessa Kirby as Stella.
