A Streetcar Named Desire

Tennessee Williams

15th to 22nd October 2016



“I'll tell you what I want. Magic! Yes, yes, magic! I try to give that to people”

A fading beauty with an even more fading grip on reality, destitute Blanche has been cast adrift in a modern world she doesn't understand. Washed up at the door of her sisters tiny apartment in a sultry district of New Orleans – a neighbourhood, where jazz and booze flow constantly, where passion and violence are only a heartbeat away.

With her delusions of grandeur, fiery conflicts ensue resulting in a spiralling, chain of events that threaten to destroy Blanche, her sanity and her only chance of happiness.

 

Winner of the 1948 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. A Streetcar Named Desire is one of the most influential plays of the twentieth century and beyond.
