Gillian Anderson To Star In London Production Of 'A Streetcar Named Desire'

28 September 2013

Gillian Anderson will star in a revival of Tennessee Williams’ famous play ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ at the Young Vic next year.

The X-Files star will take on the role of the fragile Blanche DuBois, who suffers a breakdown when she moves in with her sister and is tormented by her violent brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski.

Gillian will be following in the footsteps of talented actresses, Vivien Leigh, Cate Blanchett and Rachel Weisz, who have all taken on the tragic role.

Gillian Anderson began her career in theatre, before finding fame on the small screen in the 90s. The actress, whose performance in ‘A Doll’s House’ in London in 2009 saw her nominated for an Olivier award, won critical acclaim this year for her role on the BBC’s The Fall.

A Streetcar Named Desire will be directed by Bendict Andrews, who achieved great success with his production of Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters at the Young Vic in 2012.

The Young Vic's artistic director David Lan tells the Daily Mail "This was Gillian and Benedict working together.They sought each other out, and went through what they'd like to do, and came up with Blanche.

"With these two people involved there are going to be fireworks on the stage."

Dates have not been announced, but the production is set to run next summer.

The Young Vic have also announced a new season of plays that includes Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard, Samuel Beckett's Happy Days and Arthur Miller's A View From The Bridge.
