The Moxie: On Stage is a new series showcasing world class performances from stages across the globe.

Tickets: $20/adults; $15/members & students.

Vanessa Kirby (The Crown, NT Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) and Eric Kofi Abrefa (The Amen Corner) feature in the cast of this brand new production, directed by Carrie Cracknell (NT Live: The Deep Blue Sea) and broadcast live from the National Theatre to cinemas.

Wild and newly single, Julie throws a late night party. In the kitchen, Jean and Kristina clean up as the celebration heaves above them. Crossing the threshold, Julie initiates a power game with Jean – which rapidly descends into a savage fight for survival.

This new version of August Strinberg’s play Miss Julie, written by Polly Stenham, remains shocking and fiercely relevant in its new setting of contemporary London.

"Packs an emotional punch. Vanessa Kirby is magnetic as Julie."
- Mail on Sunday
"Provocative and profound. Carrie Cracknell’s direction is astonishing. "
- Tim Bano, The Stage
"A superlative production. Exhilarating. Quelle surprise, but Polly Stenham – poet laureate of the idle rich – has found more sympathy than most in her take on the posh anti-heroine of Strindberg’s endlessly adapted Miss Julie. "
- Andrzej Lukowski, Time Out
"130 years after she was created, Strindberg’s heroine still feels painfully relevant, and Kirby’s mesmerising performance will stay with you long after this short play hurtles to its tragic end."
- Claire Webb, Radio Times
"Kirby catches perfectly the idea of Julie as a damaged, overgrown child torn between total dependence on others and suspicion that she is seen as a moneybox anyone can shake and rattle."
- Michael Billington, The Guardian
"Miss Julie remains a play for our times. Its upstairs-downstairs order survives in our own age of inequality and, in Polly Stenham's sleek, satirical update, starring The Crown's Vanessa Kirby, rich and poor rub shoulders at a huge Hampstead house party. "
- Matt Trueman, What's On Stage
"We experience a full spectrum of emotions during a tour de force performance from Kirby, and despite the swift 80-minute running time, her attention to detail makes it all believable. From the subtle tug on her dress and tilt of a knee, to intoxicated deep chats on the kitchen floor, she makes this chaotic play feel natural."
- Will Longman, London Theatre
