All National Theatre Live Screenings are now presented at FilmScene.
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 – which rapidly desends into a savage fight for escape and ultimately survival.
This new version of August Strindberg’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, National Theatre Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) as Julie, directed by Carrie Cracknell (National Theatre Live: The Deep Blue Sea)
