National Theatre Live: Julie
About NT Live: Julie
Vanessa Kirby ("The Crown", NT Live: "A Streetcar Named Desire") and Eric Kofi Abrefa ("The Amen Corner") feature in the cast of this brand new production, directed by Carrie Cracknell (NT Live: "The Deep Blue Sea") and broadcast live from the National Theatre to cinemas. Wild and newly single, Julie throws a late night party. In the kitchen, Jean and Kristina clean up as the celebration heaves above them. Crossing the threshold, Julie initiates a power game with Jean – which rapidly descends into a savage fight for survival. This new version of August Strinberg’s play Miss Julie, written by Polly Stenham, remains shocking and fiercely relevant in its new setting of contemporary London.
