NOTE: This production will be available for streaming through May 28, 2020.
Tennessee Williams’ steamy and volatile A Streetcar Named Desire first opened on Broadway in 1947, starring Jessica Tandy, Marlon Brando and Kim Hunter. For more than 70 years this Pulitzer Prize-winning American classic has been revived and reinterpreted on stages around the world.
Blanche DuBois (Gillian Anderson, Sex Education, The X-Files) arrived at the run-down apartment of her sister Stella (Vanessa Kirby) and brother-in-law Stanley (Ben Foster). A scorching portrayal of domestic violence and familial tension, this production, directed by Benedict Andrews, remains the fastest-selling in Young Vic history and was broadcast by NT Live in 2014.
