Vanessa Kirby returns to the stage to play a 'wild and newly single' party girl. Since becoming a global name playing Princess Margaret in Netflix hit The Crown, Kirby is no stranger to mischievous characters. But she's also well versed in bold contemporary theatre, having impressed at the Young Vic, Almeida and National Theatre.
Fresh from a break-up, Julie throws a house party. In the small hours Jean and Kristen start cleaning up while the party continues upstairs. Then Julie provokes a flirtation and power struggle with Jean and the night descends into desperate brutality. With an emphasis on class and sex, this contemporary vision promises to be 'shocking and fiercely relevant'.
Director Carrie Cracknell (Medea, National Theatre) will bring her characteristic edge and ability to make classic, well-known stories buzz with freshness.
Public booking for Julie at the National Theatre opens on Friday 16 March.
