Gillian is currently performing Off-West End at the Young Vic theatre [London] in the play, A Streetcar Named Desire, as Blanche, and has been receiving excellent reviews — this marks her return to theatre, with the last production being A Doll’s House 5 years ago, in 2009.
A Streetcar Named Desire will run until September 19, 2014. Be sure to get tickets to see the play, if you’re in town!
Posted below is a synopsis of the play.
The 1948 play, written by Tennessee Williams, tells of the fragile fading southern belle Blanche, whose visit to her sister results in a dramatic, violent and sexually charged confrontation with her brother-in-law Stanley Kowalski.
