The new season of National Theatre Live Tuesday continues with a live broadcast from the Young Vic in London of “A Streetcar Named Desire.” The fastest-selling production in the Young Vic’s history, Tennessee Williams’ timeless masterpiece stars Gillian Anderson (The X-Files) as Blanche DuBois. A Streetcar Named Desire will show three times at Sierra Cinemas in Grass Valley: Live at 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, with encore showings at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday and 10 a.m. Sept. 27.

Along with Gillian Anderson, the production stars Ben Foster (Lone Survivor, Kill Your Darlings) as Stanley and Vanessa Kirby (BBC’s Great Expectations) as Stella.

As Blanche’s fragile world crumbles, she turns to her sister Stella for solace – but her downward spiral brings her face to face with the brutal, unforgiving Stanley Kowalski. Visionary director Benedict Andrews returns to the Young Vic following his Critics’ Circle Award-winning Three Sisters.

National Theatre Live is an initiative by the National Theatre to broadcast live performances onto cinema screens around the world. Since its first season in June 2009, over 1.8 million people have experienced the work of National Theatre Live in 700 cinemas in 25 countries.
