NT Live: Julie (15)
Julie By Polly Stenham, after Strindberg | Directed by Carrie Cracknell
Wild and newly single, Julie throws herself a late night birthday party. Meanwhile in the kitchen, Jean and Kristina clean up as the celebration heaves around them. Crossing this threshold, Julie initiates a power game with Jean â€“ which rapidly descends into a savage fight for escape and ultimately survival.
This new version of August Strindbergâ€™s play, written by Polly Stenham, remains shocking and fiercely relevant in its new setting of contemporary London. Starring BAFTA-winner Vanessa Kirby (The Crown, NT Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) as Julie, directed by Carrie Cracknell (NT Live: The Deep Blue Sea).
Screened live at The Paget Rooms, screened from the stage at the National Theatre.
