The 2014 theatre production of A Streetcar Named Desire was a sell-out hit, and now you can watch it from home for FREE. One of American playwright Tennessee Williams' most renowned works, it stars Gillian Anderson (The X-Files) as Blanche DuBois, Ben Foster (Lone Survivor) as Stanley Kowalski and Vanessa Kirby (Mission Impossible -Fallout) as Stella. Find it at National Theatre at Home's UK site.

A Young Vic/Joshua Andrews co-production this acclaimed production directed by Benedict Andrews was captured live at the Young Vic in 2014 and you can watch it on National Theatre's YouTube channel HERE from 7pm UK time on Thursday 21 May (FRIDAY 22 MAY 2020 4AM AEST) for one week (until 28 May). Running time is 3hrs and 25 mins with a very short interval. You'll need to get to bed early and be up with the crows, but it'll be worth it to see these powerful actors performing.

The play dramatises the life of Blanche DuBois, a Southern belle who upon falling on hard times leaves her aristocratic background and seeks refuge with her sister Stella and brother-in-law Stanley in a dilapidated New Orleans apartment building. In turning to her sister for solace as her fragile world crumbles, her downward spiral brings her face to face with the brutal, unforgiving Stanley.
